CMP Awards $160,000 in College Scholarships

CMP ScholarshipsHere’s “feel-good” story for Monday. The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) has handed out $160,000 in scholarship awards to graduating high school students who are active shooters. It’s great to see this kind of support for the next generation of marksmen.

Report By Ashley Brugnone, CMP Writer/Editor
In mid-April, Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) board members and staff sifted through a slew of CMP scholarship applications to determine which young scholar marksmen would receive CMP support for the coming academic year. After careful review, the CMP awarded monetary donations to over half of its scholarship applicants.

A total of 233 applications were received by CMP Headquarters for the 2014-2015 term – the most in the scholarship’s history. With 194 accepted and 160 awarded, the CMP granted a total of $160,000 from its scholarship fund. The $1,000 CMP Scholarships are available to graduating high school JROTC, 4-H, and other junior shooting club members.
