CAMP PERRY, Ohio -(Ammoland.com)- The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) is delighted to again award exemplary student-athletes for the 2017-2018 school year in their future endeavors through its annual scholarship program.

The CMP offers $1,000 one-year scholarships based on merit and rifle or pistol marksmanship participation to current high school seniors only.

Since 2005, CMP has awarded over $1 million in scholarship prizes.

Last year, the CMP again received a record-setting number of applications and awarded over $150,000 in scholarship money.

Winning recipients came 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.

Incomplete applications will not be considered, so please check that all required information is sent.

Because the CMP takes great care in personally reading each application, all mandatory information (including forms and other necessary materials) must be sent to the CMP in its entirety.

We are eager to recognize praiseworthy student-athletes for their hard work – so please take extra precaution in sending all application requirements.

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.

The CMP is dedicated to its commitment to youth programs and furthering the education of the successful young adults involved within them.

Through these scholarships, the CMP is able to uphold one of its missions of awarding those who present exceptional talent, motivation and determination within the field of marksmanship.

Application forms and other scholarship information can be found by visiting http://thecmp.org/communications/cmp-scholarship-program/.
