Jerry P. Rainey Scholarship

Chapter IX, the Isaac Camacho Chapter, of the Special Forces Association is pleased to announce the 2015 Jerry P. Rainey Scholarship

The Jerry P. Rainey Scholarship Fund focuses on assisting qualifying students who display outstanding potential in their chosen major. Academic excellence, community involvement, and personal character are the primary considerations weighted for selecting a recipient.

The fund was established in memory of Jerry P. Rainey, a former Green Beret and Medic. Mr. Rainey’s lifelong endeavor, driven by his infectious optimism, to assist those with which he came into contact inspired this fund. His belief that each individual possesses the ability to positively impact others is the basis for the intent of the fund.

The intent is twofold; assist a student in obtaining his or her educational objectives and perpetuate the spirit of selfless giving to others, a standard which Mr. Rainey so admirably inspired those around him to follow.

Three (3) scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each will be awarded in person annually on or before August 15, 2015. The review process will be limited to the first 50 applications received NLT June 20, 2015.
