The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) will award exemplary student-athletes for the 2017-2018 school year in their future endeavors through its annual scholarship program. The $1,000 one-year scholarships are awarded based on merit and rifle or pistol marksmanship participation to current high school seniors only.

Since 2005, the CMP has awarded over $1 million in scholarship prizes. Last year, they awarded over $150,000 in scholarship money, with winning recipients coming from a mix of JROTC schools, 4-H groups and other shooting clubs.

To be considered, applicants must turn in a list of past and present rifle or pistol competition history, awards, involvements and future expectations for the sport. Proof of participation, including match bulletins, photos or CMP Competition Tracker printouts (for example), must be presented in order to be considered for the scholarship. Applications without this will be discarded.

Those interested must also provide academic information such as GPA (3.0 or above, anything below 3.0 will not be accepted), test scores and a list of extracurricular activities. Additionally, an official transcript must be provided, along with a letter explaining why the applicant is applying and what future plans the money will fund. A nomination/recommendation letter from a coach or instructor is also required.

The deadline for application submission is March 20, 2017. Scholarships may be used to pursue post-secondary education or vocational programs for the upcoming school year.

Application forms and other scholarship information can be found by visiting thecmp.org/communications/cmp-scholarship-program. For specific questions, please contact Kathy Williams at 419-635-2141, ext. 709 or email [email protected].
