The MOAA Scholarship Fund

The MOAA Scholarship Fund

The Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) established the MOAA Scholarship Fund in 1948 to provide educational assistance benefits to children of military families. It supports one of the association's founding principles: education is the cornerstone of a strong democracy. It is funded by donations from MOAA members, Councils and Chapters, corporations, and others with a desire to help military families.

Through 2020, the MOAA Scholarship Fund has provided more than $160 million in educational assistance to more than 16,000 students. The majority of support is provided through interest-free loans. This allows us to reuse the donations over and over again.


The MOAA Scholarship Fund is a public, non-profit, charitable organization incorporated in Virginia and declared tax-exempt by the Internal Revenue Service under §501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Its tax identification number is 54-1659039.
