Century Club For Scholarships

The Century Club provides an opportunity for Shipmates and friends of the USS Boxer Veterans Association to contribute to the future of America.  Donations to the Scholarship Fund help children and grandchildren of dues paying Shipmates of the Association.

The Association has been awarding from three to five $1,000 scholarships each year, and we hope to increase that number from time to time.  Your consideration with direct donations and keeping the Association in your Will, can help students who are the future of America.   Currently, with a donation of $100 or more, you will receive a framed certificate along with our thanks.  

Thank you for your help to the children and grandchildren of our Shipmates, as they are our future.
