Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation
About Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation
Our mission is to provide college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty.
We are dedicated to serving the families of servicemembers from all branches of the armed forces who have died as a result of combat casualties, military training accidents, service-related illnesses, suicide, as well as other duty-related deaths as ruled by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
The vision of Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation is to ensure that every child of a fallen patriot receives all necessary college funding.
- We believe a college education is the single most important gift we can give these children.
- We believe this is an important investment in the future of America.
- We believe this is one of the best ways we can honor those who died defending our country.
If you are a family member or scholar looking for answers to questions regarding enrollment, please refer to our FAQs for family members in our Scholar Resource Center for more information.
Why don’t your scholars get government funding?
Nearly 100% of our scholars do receive Department of Veteran’s Affairs benefits, most often The Fry Scholarship (Chapter 33) or Dependents Education Assistance (DEA) (Chapter 35). However, while generous, this does not cover all of the needs of any given scholar.
Do you cover expenses other than tuition?
Because we understand that tuition is not the only expense related to college, Children of Fallen Patriots Scholarships include, but are not limited to room and board, tutoring, summer courses, study abroad courses, living expenses, books, and a one-time computer stipend. Expenses are justified through the submission of receipts. Please reference our Scholar Resource Page for more information.
How much does Children of Fallen Patriots award to each student?
Every student’s need varies, but on average, students are eligible for up to $6,250 in scholarship assistance per academic year. Each student’s scholarship request is handled case-by-case. Please reference our Scholar Resource Page for more information.
