Scholarships

The PSC-MOAA Chapter provides for a scholarship program directed to the families of Chapter members and to worthy children of military personnel.

In addition, PSC-MOAA supports four area High School Junior ROTC Programs (Cathedral City, Desert Hot Springs, Palm Springs and La Quinta). This support includes awarding MOAA medals and four $3,000 Scholarships ... one for the outstanding college-bound Cadet from each of the four high schools.

Scholarships are typically awarded at the April PSC-MOAA annual meeting.

The PSC-MOAA Chapter Scholarship Program provides one $3,000 scholarship to each of the area high schools that have Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps programs—Cathedral City (Air Force), Desert Hot Springs (Marine Corps), La Quinta (Air Force), and Palm Springs (Air Force).

The cadet must have been in JROTC for at least three years, held numerous positions of responsibility (usually culminating in being commander or vice commander of the unit), have an excellent academic record (3.2 GPA or above), and will be attending either a four-year or two-year college or an accredited professional school.  Being a child or grandchild of a U.S. military veteran is a plus.

The unit Senior Instructor will select the cadet and submit the name and background to the chapter representative. The Senior Instructor will also select a qualiied secondary candidate in the event the original selectee is unable to attend a college or professional school.

The scholarships are formally presented at a chapter luncheon. They are also presented at each high school’s school-wide scholarship night. The money is provided only when the awardee has matriculated at a college.
