The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) has awarded $152,000 towards outstanding junior marksmen through its CMP Scholarship Program to be used for the 2016-2017 term. A total of 267 applications were received, with 152 awarded.

In April, CMP board members and staff carefully sorted through piles of applications to determine which young marksmen would receive scholarships for the coming academic year. The $1000 CMP Scholarships are available to graduating high school JROTC, 4-H and other junior shooting club members. Scholarship applications are only accepted if they are received completed and if the applicant is a U.S. citizen, shows good moral character, is a contributing member to society and is a scholar marksman. 

Of the complete 233 applications reviewed for consideration, 120 were submitted by female juniors and 113 by male. Every state, except three, submitted at least one application. Students from Pennsylvania submitted the most, with 16, followed by Georgia (15) and Illinois (13). Even Hawaii was represented in the process, recording a total of 11 entries.

In addition to the scholarships awarded to talented marksmen across the country, six local scholarships were awarded to athletes in the Port Clinton, OH, and Talladega, AL, areas.

The CMP is dedicated to its commitment to youth programs and furthering the education of the successful young adults involved within them. Through these scholarships, the CMP is able to uphold its goal of awarding those who present exceptional talent, determination and citizenship within the field of marksmanship.

All junior marksmen are encouraged to stay focused on their academic careers as well as in becoming involved with their communities and other positive extra curricular activities. The CMP is proud to provide support to junior marksmen in their continuing education and helping to shape their fulfilling futures.
