The Pensacola Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America (PMOAA) has a long history of awarding scholarships to eligible beneficiaries.  Our program is dedicated to LT Omar Selland, USN (Dec) whose vision and driving force initiated the program in 1994.  A scholarship is perpetually awarded in his honor and is presented at the annual awards ceremony.  The President’s Award and the LT Selland Award are funded by annual donations from our members.  Mrs. Anna Johnson, an Army widow now deceased, left a bequest to our scholarship program and at least one (1) scholarship is perpetually awarded in her honor. 


GENERAL ELIGIBILITY:

PMOAA is well known for the generosity of its members in funding and awarding these annual scholarships.  One hundred percent of your donations go directly to help deserving children/step-children, grandchildren/step-grandchildren and spouses of active duty, honorably discharged veterans, reservists or retired military personnel (both officer and enlisted) of all eight Uniformed Services. Surviving spouses and children whose military parent retired and subsequently expired are also eligible.  


The applicant or military sponsor must be, at the time of application, a resident of the area served by PMOAA, i.e. Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties of Florida and South Baldwin County of Alabama.


SELECTION CRITERIA:

Applicants for our program must have completed their first year of attending an undergraduate accredited college or university as full-time students during the current academic year.  Scholarships are awarded to the same recipient for no more than three (3) school years, retroactive.  

 

Scholarships are $2,000 each and awarded on an annual basis.  Recipients are selected based on:

 

     1.  Verification of Eligibility

     2.  Career objectives, community/college activities, essay, transcripts verifying cumulative GPA and quality of application.

 

Judges are PMOAA members.  An annual scholarship awards ceremony is held in early August for personal congratulations as well as disbursement of funds.

 

Please continue your generous donations.  Donations may be made in honor of, or in memory of, an individual(s) at any time.  

Make checks payable to PMOAA Scholarship Fund and send to: 

PMOAA Scholarship Fund, P. O. Box 17728, Pensacola, FL  32501-7728
