The Offutt Enlisted Spouses Club is accepting applications through the postmark deadline of Friday, Feb. 28, for the 2020 OESC Scholarship Program.
Each year since 1972, the OESC has awarded college scholarships to graduating seniors and spouses who are dependents of active duty, retired or deceased military personnel. Recipients can be affiliated with any military rank or branch but must be living in Cass, Sarpy or Douglas counties in Nebraska or Mills and Pottawattamie counties in Iowa.
The OESC Scholarship Committee Selection Panel will determine the award recipient based on current scholastic achievement and an essay explaining why the applicant is pursuing further education and how he/she believes further education will be of personal benefit in the future.
The Scholarship Chair Molly Phillips will chair the Scholarship Selection Panel as a non-voting member. The panel may include but is not limited to: community, school, business and enlisted representatives.
Applications for 2020 must be postmarked no later than Friday, Feb. 28.

In 2019, $5,000 was awarded.
Questions, including inquiries on if a scholarship application was received, should be directed to Scholarship Chair Molly Phillips at firstname.lastname@example.org.
