“We’re thrilled that we could help these DLA-affiliated students with their future education efforts, and really pleased that we could award five more scholarships this year than last year,” said Mae DeVincentis, chairman of the foundation’s board of directors.

Merit and financial need were the main criteria upon which applications were judged. Children, stepchildren, grandchildren, nieces or nephews of current or former DLA military or civilian employee were eligible for the scholarships.
