In light of increasing higher education costs and due to the generosity of our donors, it was recently decided to increase our award to $35,000.00 for each child who loses a parent while serving in the United States Marine Corps or Federal Law Enforcement. This change is effective immediately and applies to all awards granted after January 1, 2019.
As of January 1, 2019, MC-LEF has awarded over $76 million in scholarships and other humanitarian assistance, and has supported 4,100 recipients.
Although MC-LEF is immensely proud of our work to date, there is still much to be done to support the families of America’s Marines and Federal Law Enforcement Officers.
