Lend Lease (U.S.) Community Fund Offers New Scholarship Opportunity To Lejeune High School Seniors
February 5, 2013 - 8:00am - April 1, 2013 - 12:00pm
Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, N.C.
A new scholarship opportunity is being offered by Lend Lease (US) Community Fund (LLCF) to sons and daughters of servicemembers who live in a Lend Lease privatized military community, like Atlantic Marine Corps Communities, and attend the installation’s DoDEA high school. There are currently only three locations where this is possible: Fort Knox and Fort Campbell, Kentucky, and Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
“BlueStar Scholarships was created to recognize the service of the military personnel living in our homes and communities and to honor the many sacrifices of their children," said Phillip Carpenter, president of Lend Lease (US) Community Fund. “We hope this scholarship will enable more students to pursue higher education and develop into valued leaders in their fields of study as well as give back to the communities in which they live.”
In the program’s first year, LLCF, through BlueStar Scholarships, plans to award a total of twelve (12) $5,000.00 scholarships to eligible applicants for the upcoming 2013-2014 school year. Four of the 12 available scholarships will go to seniors in the graduating class of 2013 at Lejeune High School.
Program materials, including the application form and eligibility requirements, are available on the Atlantic Marine Corps Communities website at www.atlanticmcc.com/bluestar. Students can also see their high school guidance counselor to obtain information. The BlueStar Scholarships program is now open and accepting applications through April 1, 2013.
Should you have any questions about the application process or its requirements, please contact (615) 324-8800 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

I received them this morning. Thank you so much for your help! you guys are awesome and you will have my business for any uniform or military need in the future as well as a hearty recommendation via word of mouth to anyone who wonders where they should purchase uniforms from!
Thank you so much for taking the extra time and making the extra effort
to ship another hat to me for my husband last week. The second hat
arrived last Thursday... and he was tickled with it. Although it may be
"only a hat" it is a very special hat in many ways. He will always be a
proud Marine dad, and your kindness is very much appreciated.
Congratulations. You are more responsive and informative than any other website contact I can recall. I appreciate that very much. It’s really nice to have someone like you at the MCA “front door.”

You have been the easiest person I have ever dealt with since I have started MWR out here. You were very quick to respond to my every question and very knowledgeable about your work for an order over a phone that was my greatest experience. If you were in the Marine Corps Skylar I would write you up for a meritorious promotion. I will surely write it in my books to pass the word to the next MWR rep to continue the membership with you guys.

I want to relay my many thanks to everyone at Marine Corps Association and Military Historical Tours for providing me the opportunity to experience such a wonderful trip to Russia. Had I not won this trip through MCA I may have never taken advantage of such fantastic travels. The group, the Russian Tour guide (Oleg Alexandrov) and Charlie Dunn were wonderful companions during the trip. It will be a memory I will cherish all of my remaing days on this earth.
Again, Many thanks and Semper Fidelis!

Thanks for the email; I purchased the two Marine Corps. Cups for my brother who served with the First Marine Div. in Vietnam . He was very pleased with the cups and I was very impressed with the purchase. The online catalog did not do the product the justice it deserved. Thanks again and I am sure you will hear from me in the future.
I received the shipment of plaques, books and certificates today for
mail call. It was more exciting to me than candy or magazines! Thank
you very much.

I received my blouse last Friday and want to thank you for your efforts
in getting things done. Also, please thank the tailors involved in
making everything right and please give my sincere thanks to those who
made the decision to make the necessary corrections at no charge to me.
That in itself says a lot about your organization. The blouse fits
like a glove and actually looks and feels like new.
Thank you and all the staff who had a hand in correcting a problem and making an old man happy. Semper Fi

I just wanted to say thanks so much for making sure the uniform got back
to me in time for my commissioning class's photo. It fits me well and I am so excited for commissioning which takes
place in 17 hours! Thank you again!

I received my Dress Blues I ordered from The Marine
Shop in the mail today. And I just wanted to write and tell everyone there
that you all did a great job! Everyone from the tailors, to the customer
service reps. I am highly impressed with the quality and tailoring of your
uniforms. I will definitely keep coming back to The Marine Shop in the
future for uniforms!
