Website Updates

I've been rather busy on a number of projects, one of which was updating this site.

Late last year there were issues with the site which required a rebuild. That rebuild has been completed.

I have removed the Guestbook because it was not being used by legitimate individuals, mostly spambots and the like. Use the Contact Form under Command & Signal > Contact Us, or Facebook.

I moved the How To Join to the main page.

The Archives have been re-populated.

The photo gallery was also dropped.

SFSF Application

The deadline for submissions was 15 March 2016

 

All:  Please pass on to those qualified and interested. This is not the same as the SFA Chapter 4/24 Scholarship.

 

The SFSF scholarship application is now live - we have migrated to an electronic submission this year which makes the process even easier for the sons and daughters of our Green Berets.

As in previous years, Scholarships are awarded annually and limited to undergraduate and graduate studies that result in a degree or vocational certification from an accredited Graduate School, University, College or Vocational/Technical Institution. Additionally, recipients of Special Forces Scholarship Fund (SFSF) awards will receive no more than four (4) annual scholarships for undergraduate studies and two (2) scholarships for graduate studies. 100% of every dollar donated to the SFSF is awarded to our scholarship recipients. Our volunteer directors and officers accept full responsibility for all expenses of the fund. It is our privilege.

Requirements

ELIGIBILITY: Applicants must meet the following criteria:

• Daughter or son of a current or veteran United States Army Special Forces Soldier.

• Undergraduate student must not have reached 26 years of age by 15 October.

• Graduate student must not have reached 28 years of age by 15 October.

• Full time student pursuing degree/certification completion at an accredited post secondary institution.

• A high school senior, high school graduate, or registered as a full time undergraduate student at an accredited college or post secondary vocational/technical institute.
