Spouse Scholarships

Scholarships are available in the fall to all command-sponsored, dependent, non-active duty spouses, living with their sponsor assigned to the 52nd FW, and intending to pursue an undergraduate or graduate degree at an accredited college, university or technical school at Spangdahlem or through a distance-learning program.   The applicant’s sponsor must be a U.S. military or DoD command-sponsored civilian employee assigned to the 52nd Fighter Wing unit, GSU or tenant unit.  An essay and copies of college transcripts are required to complete the application process. You can find the application here.

High School Scholarships

Graduating seniors seeking a scholarship in the spring from the SSOSC must have a minimum of 2.5 GPA from Bitburg High School, a host nation school, a school serving a GSU attached to Spangdahlem AB, or a home-schooled student whose sponsor is assigned to the 52nd Fighter Wing.  SAT/ACT scores and an essay are also required to complete the application.  Considered in the selection process are leadership roles, awards and honors, extracurricular activities, work experience and volunteerism. Students may plan to attend any accredited university, community college, trade or vocational school in the pursuit of either a 4-year or 2-year degree.

Download the High School Scholarship application and submit no later than 30 April 2021.

*We are aware that many colleges and universities are waiving the SAT/ACT this year (and possibly for longer). If an applicant chose not to take the SAT/ACT this year for that reason, they should note that in their application. They will not be penalized in the application process.
