Freedom Alliance Provides Tuition Assistance to Dependents of Troops Killed or Permanently Disabled in the Line of Duty

The Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund honors the bravery and dedication exhibited by Americans in our armed forces who have sacrificed life or limb in the defense of our country by providing college scholarships to their children. Freedom Alliance is now accepting applications for the 2005-2006 academic year.

"We can never fully give back to our brave service members what they have sacrificed for us and the cause of freedom," said Freedom Alliance President Tom Kilgannon, "but what we can do is show our appreciation by helping their children pay for college."

The application deadline for the 2005-2006 academic year is July 30th. Freedom Alliance is accepting applications from dependent children of U.S. military personnel who have been killed or permanently disabled (100% VA rating) in the line of duty during the War on Terror (Iraq, Afghanistan, Philippines, etc.). Students must be enrolled (currently or by September 2005) at an accredited college, university or vocational school.

Over the years, the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund has provided college scholarships to students whose parents have been killed or permanently disabled in such conflicts as the Persian Gulf War, the liberation of Grenada and the 1983 terrorist attack on the Marine Corps barracks in Beirut. More recently, Freedom Alliance provided scholarship assistance to the dependent children of military personnel who were killed in the October 2000 terrorist attack on the USS Cole and in the

September 11 terrorist attack on the Pentagon. In the most recent academic year, Freedom Alliance provided scholarships to 77 students.

The mission of Freedom Alliance is to promote the American heritage of freedom embodied in our Constitution; to defend the sovereignty of the United States, her people and institutions, and to maintain the security of our country with a strong national defense.
