After due consideration, the Scholarship Committee wil select two scholarship winners each year. These exemplary students will receive a $1000 cash award.

The USMRA Scholarship Committee wishes to thank the membership for the honor of having served in this capacity. We have once again had the opportunity to see first hand some outstanding young adults who have distinguished themselves by their pursuit of excellence and their willingness to serve their fellows. We also witnessed the tremendous comradeship and generosity of so many Rangers. Because of them, USMRA is able to award these scholarships. Indeed, Rangers Lead the Way!

The deadline for submitting a nomination packet is the March meeting of each year.
