Many students with ROTC experience go on to serve us all by joining a branch of the armed forces. In fact, those with ROTC experience make up most of the officer ranks within all branches of service.
Supporting these students during their college experience is a major focus of our efforts and offers a way for contributors also to support both students and our armed forces. All scholarships offered by the Wilbanks Foundation follow guidelines that offer opportunities for these young leaders.
High school seniors within the State of Georgia may apply for a Hilliard A. Wilbanks Foundation Scholarship. Those individuals seeking a college degree with an emphasis on patriotism will receive special consideration. Further education examples include ROTC, enrollment in a military college, criminal justice, public service, or Peace Corps.
Renewable scholarships in the amount of $1,000 (4 consecutive years, maximum $4,000) are awarded annually based on available funds.
Selection of the scholarship recipients will be made by the children of Captain Hilliard A. Wilbanks, and then approved by the Hilliard A. Wilbanks Foundation Scholarship Committee and the Board of Directors.
Applications must be in the hands of the Foundation no sooner than March 15 each year, and no later than April 15 of the year of application.
