Scholarship Trust Committee Announces New Procedures for 2011

National 4th Infantry (IVY) Division Association Foundation

The Scholarship Trust Committee has updated its policy for the distribution of Scholarships and Charitable gifts from the 4IDA Foundation.

The Scholarship Trust will fund up to (10) ten $2,000 educational scholarships annually per the current Annual Scholarship drawing policy. All requests for Memorial scholarships will be honored.

The National 4th Infantry (IVY) Division Association established a 501(c)(3) scholarship trust August 29, 1969. The trust agreement sets forth guidelines for a trust to be used exclusively for charitable and educational purposes within the United States. A Scholarship Committee, not to exceed six members, headed by the National President of the Association shall direct the distribution of scholarships.

At the time of its creation during the peak of the Vietnam War, the primary focus of the trust was helping with the educational needs of the children of fallen 4ID soldiers. At this the fund was very successful helping many children with thousands of dollars in aid. In 1996, the trust fund had completed all eligible recipients of the Vietnam Era.

Since the completion of the eligible Vietnam era recipients the trust has been organized to award two types of scholarships - Memorial and Annual educational scholarships.

Memorial Scholarships Awards are provided to dependent children of fallen 4ID soldiers since the beginning of war on terror (9/11/2001). It is important to note that recent improvements in military benefits for spouses and children of fallen soldiers have done much to help with the cost of furthering their education. Our memorial scholarships will help supplement these G.I. benefits.
