Chapter 38 Members,
Folks for those of you who have not been at our monthly meetings; I just want to take a quick moment to paint a broad brush of how the Chapter is progressing financially since my last letter of February 2017.
Bottom line we are doing quite will; to say we've been blessed by efforts large and small is an understatement.
2018 Robin Moore / Karen Stone Scholarship Announcement
Chapter 38 is announcing multiple college scholarships in the following categories – General and Arts. General scholarships are open to all pursuing education outside the Arts field; the Karen Stone Arts Scholarship is designed for those pursing advanced education in the arts field. Arts disciplines will be defined as education in traditional art fields (music, visual, dance, theater), but will also include those pursuing education in architecture, media arts, and computer design.
Multiple scholarships will be awarded in the General category, but only one scholarship ($2,500) will be presented in the Arts category. Through the scoring template, the priority will go to graduating high school seniors; however, this priority should not prevent college enrollees, those previously attempted but denied, or those enrolling in post graduate education from submitting packets.
Additionally, the submission of a scholarship packet with Chapter 38 does not preclude those authorized from participating in the SFA National Education Assistance Fund – Requirements differ slightly from those of Chapter 38.
Requirements: Must be a current member, or family member of current member, of Chapter 38; or currently assigned, or family member, of a Soldier currently assigned to the 5th SFG.
To apply – the following documentation is required:
1. A written introduction letter of intent from applicant addressed to SFA 38 Scholarship Committee.
2. A. SFA Member: A recommendation letter from applicant’s sponsor (Current Chapter Member).
B. Non – SFA Member: A sponsoring letter from a Senior Non-Commissioned Officer or Officer currently assigned (as of 14 April 2018) to the 5th SFG (affiliation will be verified).
3. 2018 High School Graduates: Current high school transcripts and an acceptance letter from your intended college of choice.
4. Under Graduate / Post Graduates: Current / most recent college transcripts.
5. Three recommendation / sponsorship letters, in addition to that previously outlined in #2; for those applying for the Karen Stone Arts Scholarship one of these letters must come from an arts instructor, teacher, coordinator in order to verify history, desire, and future intent to pursue an Arts education.

Chapter 38 Members,
As you know we have lost five (5) of our young Warriors in the last four months due to combat, and accident, and cancer-all taken from their familes and their Brother's in Arms well before their times.
Throughout this time, Chapter 38 supported their families during their time of grief and the "Legion" as they prepared for each '"Warriors's Memorial" - as both our charter and honor dictates.
