Army Emergency Relief's MG James Ursano Scholarship Program For Dependent Children of Active, Retired and Deceased Soldiers
Army Emergency Relief (AER) is a private non-profit organization with the primary mission of providing financial assistance to Soldiers and their dependents in time of valid emergency need. The MG James Ursano Scholarship Program was established in 1976 as a secondary mission to help Army Families with undergraduate college expenses for their dependent children. The MG James Ursano Scholarship Program funds are limited therefore scholarship awards are limited.
The MG James Ursano Scholarship Program offers scholarships based on financial need, academics, and leadership/achievement for each academic year.
- Maintain a cumulative GPA of a 2.0 on a 4.0 scale
- Be full time undergraduate students for the entire academic year at a school accredited by the U.S. Department of Education

To be a dependent you must be:
- Under the age of 23 for the entire academic year
- Registered in DEERS

The scholarship funds are split evenly between the fall and spring semesters, or terms or quarters. The funds are to be used for tuition, fees, books, supplies and school room and board either on or off campus as requested by the student.
