Mail your application to the Marine Corps Disbursing Association, Scholarship Program, 1014 Jenny Lillard Road, Lawrenceburg, KY 40342.


The Education Assistance Program is now known as the Shelly Stokley Memorial Scholarship Fund.  The membership renamed the program in honor of our first president Shelly Stokley who passed away in February 2012.  Additionally, the membership named our annual scholarship fund raising golf tournament the “Chip Van Kirk Memorial“ in honor of the founder of the tournament, Eileen “Chip” Van Kirk who passed away in June of 2012.


Although the annual golf tournament, held in Kansas City, provides the primary funding for our scholarship program, you can help by making a personal donation or a memorial donation for a loved one. We need your help to continue to provide assistance to our Marine families everywhere.  To make a donation just complete the donation form found below and mail.
