Our Scholarships

The Fort Knox Spouses and Community Club provides merit based scholarships for eligible military family members. The scholarships will be awarded based on these categories: academic achievement, extracurricular activities, job record, volunteer work, community involvement, and a brief essay. All applicants will be considered for the scholarship regardless of ethnicity, race, religion, sex, age, rank of sponsor or financial need.  

 

We are happy to announce that we will also be offering scholarships graciously provided by the First Command Educational Foundation. We also work with the Bluegrass Sergeants Major Association to determine their scholarship recipients. We are excited about the opportunities we have to work alongside First Command and Bluegrass Sergeants Major Association. Thank you to these organizations for partnering with FKSCC to support students in our area!
