Donaldson D. Frizzell Scholarship Open

The Donaldson D. Frizzell Scholarship scholarship is named in memory of Donaldson D. Frizzell, former First Command Educational Foundation (FCEF) President and former First Command Financial Services Director of Investments, whose dedication to serving others and contributions to the field force spanned three decades.

The Donaldson D. Frizzell Scholarship is open to:
1) members of the U.S. uniformed services (active, guard, reserve, and retired) and their spouses and dependents,
2) First Command Financial Services’ clients and their families,
3) dependent family members of First Command Advisors and field office staff members, and
4) non-contractual ROTC students.

$25,000 in scholarship awards will be distributed in 2015 in two student categories (Traditional and Non-traditional) among the eligible applicant groups. The final number of awards and amount of each award is determined by an independent Scholarship Review Committee, whose selections are based on an assessment of merit, strength of applicants’ recommendations, and quality of the applicants’ essays. Scholarships can be awarded to those seeking accredited trade school certifications and associate, undergraduate, and graduate degrees.

The application period for the 2015 scholarship is open from February 9, 2015, through April 6, 2015, or until FCEF receives 500 applications, whichever comes first.
