JROTC Scholarship

In 2013 we began working with Robert E Lee High School’s NJROTC squad for various display events.  In a conversation late that year, Commandant Rob Baldwin had a conversation with Past President John Hamel about the challenges some cadets face finding scholarship opportunities for higher learning.  The scholarships currently available are highly competitive and heavily weighted on overall GPA and grading.  Many less advantaged cadets coming from single-parent households are strong cadets however spend their evenings caring for younger siblings while parents work off hours and sometimes 2nd jobs.

With that in mind, and the founding of the YAP JROTC Charity Clay Shoot, in 2014 the SBMC Charities Board created the new JROTC Scholarship!  This scholarship has a minimum GPA requirement of 2.5 but is primarily focused on cadet performance in JROTC.  The application is currently being revised however all Duval County JROTC Cadets are eligible but must have volunteered for SBMC or its affiliates in some capacity during High School as a minimum qualification.
