MBOSC Accepting Applications for Scholarship Program

By NPS Public Affairs

Anjeli Rebelo, right, Scholarships and Grants Coordinator for the Monterey Bay Officers' Spouses Club (MBOSC), helps a Seaside High School senior complete her scholarship application, Feb. 24.

"It's my honor to be part of the committee that helps recognize the academic and extracurricular achievements of our high school graduates and postgraduate applicants within our military community," said Rebelo.

MBOSC is currently accepting scholarship applications for eligible military family members. The merit-based scholarships are available to military dependents of active duty, retired or deceased military members living in the Monterey County area, or to military dependents of NPS alumni living anywhere in the world.

With officer spouses from NPS, the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center, and Naval Support Activity Monterey, MBOSC boasts more than 200 members. Scholarship applicants will be judged based on merit, academic promise, extra-curricular activities, community involvement, references and an essay.

"At the core of our organization is our philanthropic work that supports our military families through scholarships, as well as our Monterey Bay and military communities through our charitable donations," said MBOSC President Meagan Klipstein. "In 2015, we gave away more than $30,000 in scholarships and grants."
