The Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation Arizona Awards Dinner celebrates the 96 Marine Corps sons and daughters from and/or attending school in Arizona who have received scholarships for the 2014-2015 academic year. Scholarship recipients are spread across the state at 19 Arizona colleges, universities and vocational schools. The event also honors the local community that invested more than $600,000 last year alone to support these children’s dreams of higher-education. The black tie optional event is held each year in support of the Scholarship Foundation’s mission to Honor Marines by Educating Their children.
The dinner celebration will include a key-note address from a Military Guest of Honor and a presentation from one of the scholarship recipients. Awards will also be presented to community leaders and local marines.
