CBSC Scholarship Committee
P.O. Box 924
Carlisle, PA 17013
Please ensure that you have included your current email address on the application. You will be sent an email to notify you that we have received your scholarship application packet.
Each scholarship application is assigned a number by the chairperson of the Scholarship Committee thereby ensuring that each application is anonymous; judging is “blind” to promote fairness. Your application is judged by both civilian and military members of the Carlisle community. The application will be evaluated on a variety of merit-based factors to include academics and GPA, your involvement in your school and community, and a personal essay. Please keep all these factors in mind as you fill out your form as thoroughly as possible. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Scholarship Committee using the contact form below.
Members wishing to submit a Scholarship Application for themselves, their spouse, or their dependent child must fill out a Membership Application and pay the membership fee no later than January 31 of the board year (as stated in Article IV of the CBSC Constitution).
A member may not serve on the Scholarship Committee or as a judge of applications or essays if they wish to apply for a Scholarship or if a Scholarship Application is submitted by their spouse or dependent child.
Scholarships are merit based and are judged using a blind process (numbers are assigned to applicants so judges do not know their names). Checks are sent directly to the recipient’s school. Monies will be used toward tuition, fees, books, and other academic expenses. If an applicant is the recipient of an academic or athletic 4-year scholarship (a.k.a. “full ride”) or receives an appointment to one of the military academies, their scholarship may be used to offset fees related to their academic courses (for example: a required laptop computer) or the scholarship award must be declined or returned.
Fill out an application if you are a high school senior planning on attending college in the fall of 2018, or if you are already a college student working toward your bachelor’s degree. Our spouses are also encouraged to apply! This is what you need:
-Be a CBSC member or dependent of a member as of 30 October 2017, or within 60 days of report date on official orders (report date after 1 Oct)
– Be a high school senior or home-school equivalent within 50 miles of Carlisle Barracks or a spouse or continuing ed student enrolled in an accredited college/university or certification program.
-Be able to enroll as a matriculated student as defined by the college/university/certification program during the 2018-19 academic year
