The trustees of the MSF have voted and approved to extend the eligibility for college and university scholarship grants for the very first time to recently discharged, who have served honorably, Third Marine Division Marines or those attached to it e.g. Navy Corpsmen as follows: “Any personnel who has been recently honorably discharged having been a member of or attached to a unit of the Third Marine Division (Reinf) provided the person has held Association membership for a period of at least two (2) consecutive years immediately prior to the date of the first application, be current on all annual dues payments and who continues his or her membership for the entire period of their financial assistance.” We encourage all active duty Third Marine Division Marines and those attached to it, to apply for membership now well in advance of their discharge date.
Potential applicants should review the Eligibility Requirements set out HERE. All children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildern of those Association members who have held Association membership for at least two (2) consecutive years immediately prior to the eligible dependent child's first application for scholarship assistance are eligible to apply for scholarship consideration.
Interested persons that are eligible are urged to act immediately since applications must be completed and received by the Association by May 31, 2020.

Hochmuth, the Memorial Scholarship Fund has now honored over 812 students with college scholarship awards in excess of $675,000.00. As a result, dependents of Third Marine Division Association members have consistently demonstrated excellence in colleges and universities across the United States.
