Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund


The Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund was the vision of Freedom  Alliance founders LtCol Oliver North, USMC (Ret.) and the late LtGen  Edward Bronars, USMC. The Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund honors  Americans in our Armed Forces who have sacrificed life or limb defending  our country by providing educational scholarships for their children.


The mission of the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund is two-fold.  First, it helps offset the high cost of a college education for the sons  and daughters of American heroes. Second, it is a reminder to the  recipient that their parents’ sacrifice will never be forgotten by a  grateful nation.

The dependent children of U.S. military personnel who have been  killed or permanently disabled in an operational mission or training  accident are eligible to apply. Also eligible are students who have a  parent classified as a Prisoner of War or Missing in Action.


The generosity of patriotic Americans has made it possible for the  Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund to award more than $7 million in  college scholarships to the sons and daughters of American heroes.
