The Fisher House "Heroes' Legacy Scholarships" Program
The "Heroes' Legacy Scholarships" program honors not only those who have fallen in battle, but all who have died or have become disabled through their active military service since September 11, 2001. The program is open to their dependent unmarried children under age 23. A disability is defined as one that results in the service member being eligible for, and receiving, Traumatic Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (TSGLI) or a permanent and total disability compensation rating of 100%.
The scholarship grants for this special program are principally underwritten by the author's after tax proceeds from the book "Of Thee I Sing. A Letter to My Daughters" written by President Barack Obama , and augmented by generous gifts from donors interested in supporting Fisher House scholarship programs. The amount to be awarded each year depends on the amount of royalties, as well as additional scholarship donations. Click this link for more information on the Heroes' Legacy Scholarships Program.
