NewDay USA Gold Star Scholarships
Purpose: To recognize the commitment and sacrifice made to our country by veterans and military families, the NewDay USA Foundation has established a scholarship fund for candidates desiring to attend select military high schools. The purpose of this scholarship is to assist young men and women in their pursuit of academic success and character development, and to prepare them to become leaders.
The NewDay USA Foundation Scholarship may provide up to $15,000 tuition assistance for students attending these schools. Participating schools will match this award. Families are expected to contribute as they are able. Eligible students may apply for the scholarships by completing an application with the schools to which they have been accepted.
