Schilling Distributing company and Budweiser will provide one Acadiana area family with a $5,000 Folds of Honor scholarship during a special presentation later this summer.

Qualified applicants are urged to apply online at www.foldsofhonor.org/scholarship or call (918) 274-4700; application deadline is Tuesday, March 31, 2015.

The Folds of Honor Foundation, based in Owasso, Okla., is a nonprofit, charitable organization with a mission to empower military families by providing educational scholarships and other assistance for the children and spouses of military service men and women killed or disabled while serving our great nation.

Since its inception in 2007, Owasso-based Folds of Honor has awarded more than 5,000 educational scholarships. As of January 2012, more than one million dependents have been affected by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Of these, 87 percent do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. For more information or to make a donation, visit FoldsofHonor.org.
