The foundation is there to provide financial help to the children of military personnel who have been killed in the line of duty.
Their main aim is to serve the families of service members from all branches of the armed forces who have died as a result of combat casualties, military training accidents and service-related illnesses.
There is a possibility of retroactive scholarship funding for students, including college graduates, who have already paid out college-related expenses.
A full scholarship can be used for the payment of tuition, books, lab fees, and other related expenses.
