  • FAQ'S
    General
    I’m an active duty service member (National Guard/Reserves).  Do my children and/or spouse qualify for a FHF scholarship?

    No, unless you have received any one of the following and can submit it as supporting documentation:

    1.       An official, completed MEB report showing a service-connected disability;

    2.       An official, completed PEB report showing a service-connected disability;

    3.       A Purple Heart Medal (Copy of Certificate required)

    I’m a disabled veteran with grandchildren.  Are my grandchildren eligible for a Folds of Honor scholarship?

    No.  Folds of Honor scholarships are awarded only to spouses and children of disabled veterans.

    My spouse is a disabled veteran, but he/she served prior to September 11, 2001.  Do my children or I qualify for any Folds of Honor Scholarships?

    Yes.  Folds of Honor Scholarships are awarded to all spouses of killed or disabled veterans and/or dependent children who are 24 years and under and are not married, regardless of what era of service.  There is no age limitation on a spouse.  To qualify for a scholarship, however, the spouse must not have remarried.

    My step-father/step-mother is a disabled veteran.  Do I qualify for a Folds of Honor scholarship?

    Yes, if you can prove you are your step-father/step-mother’s dependent.  If you are not listed on the DEERS Report or if you do not have a current military ID with your step-father/step-mother as “Sponsor,” you can include a copy of your birth certificate that links you to one parent and also include a copy of the marriage license between the two.

    I am a disabled veteran, but I don’t have a 100% disability.  Is there a Folds of Honor scholarship that my spouse or children qualify for?

    Our scholarships depend on a veteran’s service-connected, VA-rated disability.  However, the percentage of disability is not a key factor.  A veteran can have as little as a 0% VA-rated disability, and his spouse and/or children still qualify for our scholarships.

    My child received a Future Use Scholarship several years ago and has now been accepted to a university.  How do I proceed to get the funds from the Future Use Scholarship account?

    If your child was awarded a Future Use Scholarship in the past and is now ready to use the funds, he/she is considered to be a “Transition.”  You will need to call the Folds of Honor main number (918.272.5307) and connect with the Director of Scholarships to receive detailed information on how to proceed.

    I received a Folds of Honor scholarship last year.  Do I need to re-apply for the scholarship this year?

    Yes.  The Immediate Use Scholarship and the Children’s Scholarship Fund must be applied for every year.  The Future Use Scholarship, however, is awarded only once to each child who qualifies.  When the child is ready to use the Future Use funds, call the Director of Scholarships at Folds of Honor, (918.272.5307).
