About the Program

The purpose of our scholarship program is to create an opportunity for continued education for combat-wounded Veterans or a lineal descendant of a Purple Heart recipient.

The Department of Florida, Scholarship Program is funded by money raised by the Department of Florida and in no way, is part of the National Military order of the Purple Heart Scholarship Program. The MOPH Department of Florida Scholarship Program is a competitive scholarship program that awards scholarships to an applicant who received a Purple Heart medal and to a direct lineage applicant annually.

Not every applicant will receive a scholarship. We award 2 scholarships annually, providing all requirements are met. This is not a full-tuition scholarship. The amount of the scholarship may vary each year subject to funding levels. The scholarships awarded for 2021-2022 will be in the amount of $500.00.
