Additional criteria:

A college education is the single most important gift we can give these children. In today’s world a college education is the key to a successful future. Not only does it ensure job opportunities in our increasingly knowledge-based economy, but it also introduces students to ideas and methods of learning that will serve them in all aspects of their lives. By providing college scholarships and long-term educational counseling to these children, we honor the lives of those who have sacrificed themselves for our country, ensuring the success of those they loved.
