CMP Offers $1,000 Scholarships to Qualified High School Students Participating in Marksmanship

By Steve Cooper, CMP Writer

CAMP PERRY, OHIO - The Civilian Marksmanship Program is taking applications for its $1,000 annual college scholarship program, available to all graduating high school seniors who participate in rifle or pistol marksmanship competitions.
CMP Board Member Marsha Beasley presents a $1,000 CMP Scholarship Award to Devin Smith. Devin participated in the 2012 National Rimfire Sporter Match at Camp Perry.

Last year the CMP awarded 59 scholarships to non-JROTC students. It was the first year of the CMP’s expanded scholarship outreach program.

In years passed, CMP scholarship awards were available only to those in or accepted into an ROTC program or to graduating JROTC cadets who had qualified to compete at the JROTC Service Championships. The CMP Scholarship Program no longer requires a relationship with an ROTC program. There are no changes in the program which affect graduating JROTC Service Championship qualifiers.

The scholarship program provides a non-renewable one year scholarship for graduating seniors only – and is available to all graduating seniors who participate in rifle or pistol marksmanship competitions. One half of the total allocation is set aside specifically for graduating JROTC seniors who qualified to compete at the CMP JROTC Service Championships.

“We are truly excited that the CMP Board of Directors has extended our scholarship opportunities to the many qualified graduating seniors who participate in marksmanship competitions outside of JROTC programs,” said Christie Sewell, CMP North General Manager.

“The CMP has extended this scholarship offer to the many deserving college-bound high school senior rifle or pistol competitors who have helped our programs thrive. Of course, our support of the JROTC Cadet Commands remains unwavering,” Sewell said.

The CMP offers up to 150 $1,000 scholarships to qualified graduating seniors active in marksmanship programs. In the 2012-13 school year, CMP awarded 138 scholarships, totaling $150,000. CMP has awarded approximately $1 million in scholarships since 2005.

Members of high school shooting programs, 4-H shooting programs, American Legion, Boy Scouts, CMP-affiliated club competitors and others are invited to apply for college scholarship assistance in addition to JROTC.

Eligibility requirements for CMP scholarships:

• Be a U.S. Citizen.
• Be of good moral character.
• Have achieved a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average.
• Be a graduating high school senior
• Demonstrate acceptance to a university, college or trade school leading to a diploma or trade certification.
• Qualified for CMP JROTC Service Championships
• Demonstrate rifle or pistol marksmanship competition experience.
