SMA Alumni Scholarship
About the Program


The Staunton Military Academy Legacy Scholarship Program was established in 2016 by the SMA Alumni Foundation. Up to four scholarships, with a minimum value of $1500 each, will be awarded annually. These scholarships were created to recognize and award deserving men and women who, during the year of application, are graduating high-school seniors and have been accepted by an accredited four or two year institution of higher learning, excluding the four Service Academies. Those applicable Service Academies are: The United States Military Academy at West Point, the Naval Academy, the Air Force Academy, and the Coast Guard Academy.

Funding of the SMA Legacy Scholarship Program is provided by the SMA Legacy Fund. This fund was created to preserve and perpetuate the traditions of Truth, Duty and Honor, which every cadet who attended the former Staunton Military Academy was expected to embrace and live by.

Successful scholarship applicants will demonstrate through the application process the importance of Truth, Duty and Honor to them and how it is reflected in their lives.
