CAMP PERRY, OH – The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) is proud to again award exemplary student-athletes in their future endeavors through its annual scholarship program. The CMP offers $1,000 one-year scholarships based on merit and rifle or pistol marksmanship participation to current high school seniors.
Last year, the CMP received 256 scholarships – setting another record as the most ever in the scholarship’s history. After careful consideration, 173 were awarded for a total of $173,000 from the CMP Scholarship fund. Recipients hailed from JROTC schools, 4-H groups and other shooting clubs. Since 2005, CMP has awarded over $1 million in scholarship prizes.
The "deadline" for application submission is Mid- March. Scholarships may be used to pursue post-secondary education or vocational programs for the upcoming school year.
