Dear Memorial Foundation Scholarship Applicant:
Thank you for your interest in TREA: The Enlisted Association Memorial Foundation’s Scholarship Program. Your completed application must be returned to the Foundation Office and postmarked no later than April 30, 2016. Applications received after that postmarked date will not be considered.
To qualify for a Scholarship Award, you must be a child or grandchild of a member in good standing (deceased or otherwise) of TREA or TREA National Auxiliary. Adults or emancipated children are not eligible. If an applicant is notified of award of another TREA scholarship grant from other TREA entities, i.e., the National Auxiliary or a Chapter, the Memorial Foundation Scholarship Award will be null and void. It is not fair for one applicant to receive more than one grant from TREA which in essence excludes other qualified applicants. Each applicant will be required to write a 300 word essay on the following topic: Referencing the poem by Emma Lazarus that is on the Statue of Liberty, does the United States still welcome the tired, the poor, the huddled masses yearning to breathe free? Should the United Stated continue to open its shores to people like the Syrian refugees that are at the center of such conflict? Additionally, your application must be completed in its entirety.
All TREA Memorial Foundation Scholarship applications will be graded. Winners will be notified by letter of a scholarship grant and will be provided with corresponding forms to be completed and returned to the Foundation.
Please do not hesitate to call this office if you have any questions.
Sincerely and good luck!
William B. DeBoer, Sr.
Chairman, TREA Memorial Foundation
