Press Release

Yesterday, the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) honored Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) by establishing the Representative Joe Wilson United States House of Representatives Senior Grant. This scholarship, managed by MOAA, will be awarded to a distinguished student entering his or her senior year.

“I am grateful to the MOAA Board of Directors and Lieutenant General Dana Atkins for their dedicated service to our men and women in uniform and their families. I am humbled and honored that starting this fall, MOAA will offer a scholarship in my name to military families,” Wilson said.

“As the son of a World War II Flying Tiger, a 31-year retiree from the Army Reserves and South Carolina Army National Guard, and the father of four sons who have served in the military, I know first-hand how important it is to support our military families.”  

Since 1948, MOAA’s Scholarship Fund has awarded educational grants and scholarships to undergraduate students of uniformed officers and enlisted families. Learn more about MOAA’s Scholarship Fund here.
