Scholarship Program

FORT LEE, Va. Now entering its 16th year, the Scholarships for Military Children Program will be accepting applications from eligible students beginning Dec. 15 at commissaries worldwide or on the Internet at www.militaryscholar.org.

A total of 700 scholarship grants, each worth $2,000, will be awarded for the 2016-17 school year. Those students selected for the honor will join nearly 9,000 who've been awarded more than $13.9 million in scholarship grants over the last 15 years.

At least one scholarship will be awarded at every commissary location where qualified applications are received. Additional recipients will be selected based on a prorated basis, so more scholarships will be awarded at those commissaries with larger numbers of applicants.

To qualify for consideration, applicants must be a dependent, unmarried child, younger than 21 or 23, if enrolled as a full-time student at a college or university of a service member on active duty, a Reserve or Guard member, retiree or survivor of a military member who died while on active duty, or survivor of a retiree.

Applications must be hand-delivered or shipped via U.S. Postal Service or other delivery methods to the commissary where the applicant's family normally shops by close of business Friday, Feb. 12, 2016. Applications cannot be emailed or faxed.

Applicants should ensure that they and their sponsor are enrolled in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System database and have a military ID card. The applicant must attend or plan to attend an accredited college or university, full time, in the fall of 2016 or be enrolled in studies designed to transfer to a four-year program.

Students who are awarded a full scholarship or receive an appointment to one of the military academies or affiliated preparatory schools are not eligible to receive funds from this program. A full scholarship is usually defined as one that provides for payment of tuition, books, lab fees and other expenses.

Fisher House Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps service members and their families, administers the program. Scholarship Managers, a national, nonprofit, scholarship management services organization, manages and awards the scholarships.

The commissary's industry partners vendors, suppliers and manufacturers and the general public donate money to the program, and every dollar donated goes directly toward funding the scholarships.

For more information, students or sponsors can visit www.militaryscholar.org. You can also call Scholarship Managers at 856-616-9311 or email them at militaryscholar@scholarshipmanagers.com.

Gift of groceries

FORT LEE, Va.
Giving the gift of groceries takes on a new meaning during the holidays when service members receive Commissary Gift Cards from their families and friends.
It's a time-honored tradition for military members to "take care of their own," said Air Force Command Chief Master Sgt. Stuart M. Allison, the Defense Commissary Agency's senior enlisted advisor to the agency director. However, Commissary Gift Cards make it possible for individuals and organizations everywhere - inside or outside of the military community - to also help their favorite soldier, sailor, airman, Marine and their families by extending their commissary benefit.

Commissary Gift Cards come in denominations of $25 and $50. Anyone can purchase a card for an authorized patron either online through DeCA's website, http://www.commissaries.com, or at a commissary.

The gift card can be used to pay for all in-store purchases or customers can use multiple forms of payments and coupons along with the gift card. Gift cards cannot be redeemed for cash, and customers will not be able to receive change for any unused amount left on the card. With its declining balance, the gift card is used until it is zeroed out.

Since DeCA began the gift card program in June 2011, commissaries have sold nearly 600,000 cards worth almost $20 million through Sept. 30, said Bob Bunch, gift card program manager. Also, nearly 90 percent of the cards purchased since the program started have been redeemed. I'm an Army veteran, and I can tell you it adds something extra during the holidays for service members to receive Commissary Gift Cards, Bunch said. They're a quick and easy way to extend their commissary benefit.

Here are some Commissary Gift Card quick facts:
*Gift cards are available at all commissaries worldwide-on a rack at full service, front-end registers as well as through the DeCA website, http://www.commissaries.com. Click on the Shoppingtab at the top of the page, then Gift Cards and then the Place your order box.
*The cards expire five years from the date of purchase.
*Commissary Gift Cards purchased online incur a shipping and handling fee. These fees are not assessed, however, when the card is purchased in a store.
*There is no limit to the number of gifts cards that a purchaser can buy. However, DeCA officials recommend organizations and activities consider purchasing their gift cards online if they plan to purchase more than 50 cards at a time.
*Commissary Gift Cards can be shipped anywhere in the United States. When shipping outside the United States, an APO, FPO or DPO address must be used.
*To check the gift card balance, visit http://www.commissaries.com, click on "Shopping",then "Gift Cards" and then the "Check your balance" box.
*For customer service questions, please call 877-988-4438, which is also found on the back of the gift card. Customers can also use this number to check the balance on their card.
Customers who still have unused gift vouchers, the precursor to the gift card, may still redeem them through Aug. 31, 2016, regardless of the expiration date printed on it. After this date, DeCA will no longer accept gift vouchers as a form of payment.
