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 bluestar@lendlease.com.
