Students who have served in the Special Forces are eligible for an annual scholarship sponsored by ROTC Consulting. This scholarship is available for a student who served in the U.S. Army Special Forces and is now a full time student. The award is for $1000 and deadline is June 1 2021
The scholarship is named in honor of Captain James Ahn who died in a tragic parachuting accident while with his unit in Washington State in 2015. The following is the link to the website: CPT James Ahn Memorial Scholarship.
Captain James Ahn, a graduate of UC Riverside and the Claremont McKenna College Army ROTC program, died in 2015 during a parachute training operation while participating with his Special Forces unit in Washington State.
For all of us who knew and loved James, he will never be forgotten. He was the consummate person and professional who was respected by everyone he came in contact with.
In James’ honor, we are sponsoring an annual scholarship of $1,000 to a Special Forces Veteran who is working towards the completion of a higher education degree.
