The Daughters of the Cincinnati has been awarding scholarships for many years with the aim to help daughters of the officers in the United States army, so each year the fund gives from $16,000–$20,000 to students who want to achieve higher education goals but have financial issues.

The first Scholarship Fund was established in 1906 for the daughters of  United States Army and Navy officers.

From that moment on, the number of scholarships and the amount awarded has increased.

Full Description

Daughters of career commissioned officers in the United States armed services are encouraged to apply for this scholarship and they should know that the selection will be based on both merit and financial need.

The award is payable in equal installments over four years of education.

The winners will have to prove great academic achievement and excellence in extracurricular activities.

The amount of the award will vary according to need, but will be given during the period of four years if the recipient continues to fulfill the requirements.

Who's eligible?

In order to be eligible for this award, you must be a daughter of career commissioned officers in the United States military and be in your senior year in high school.

On the official website of the scholarship provider there is a link which you should click to see if you qualify for a scholarship.

Some of the questions you will be asked there are related to your education and whether your parent who is on active duty, retired, or deceased while on active duty has/had the eligible rank.

If the SUBMIT button appears, after you have filled in the information, you should click on it and that means you are eligible for the scholarship.

If it does not appear, you are not eligible for it.

How to Apply

If you are eligible for this scholarship, you should send your applications due by March 15.

The application process includes: an essay, a secondary school report, a letter of recommendation from a member of the applicant’s community, and a Student Aid Report (SAR).

Make sure to submit all the documentation prior to the deadline, as it will not be accepted after that date.
