Corvias Foundation has announced that applications for the 2016 scholarships and educational grants are now available.
The foundation is committed to supporting military families in the pursuit of higher education and has awarded nearly $6 million in scholarships and grants to children and spouses of active-duty service members since 2006. 
“Serving military families is a tremendous honor for everyone here at Corvias and we are very excited to open up the 2016 scholarship and educational grant application process,” said Maria Montalvo, executive director of Corvias Foundation. “Every one of our scholars brings a unique and inspiring background to the foundation family and we’re thrilled to help guide their educational and professional dreams both financially and as a support system.”
Applications for the 2016 scholarships must be submitted by Feb. 11, 2016, and will be awarded to high school seniors with plans of attending a four-year university or college. All scholarship applicants will be notified of their award status by the end of April.
Applications for the 2016 educational grants must be submitted by May 5. Grants are given in the amount of up to $5,000 to spouses of active-duty service members stationed at Edwards AFB. Corvias Foundation will select 20 recipients and applicants may be in any stage of the educational process. All applicants will be notified of their award status by the end of July, 2016.
Applications and all necessary paperwork for both the scholarship and educational grant must be submitted by the due date in order to be considered. Selected recipients may begin using their scholarship or educational grant in the fall of 2016. Families do not have to reside in on-post/base housing in order to qualify for scholarships or grants. Eligible service members stationed at Edwards AFB can serve in any branch of the military.
