FBOCSA scholarships are available to spouses and children of active-duty, reserve-component, retired, and Gold Star service members of ALL RANKS as well as the spouses and children of civilian employees whose sponsor lives in, or is assigned to, the Fort Bliss/El Paso area.

Applications must be postmarked by April 4, 2014.

OCSA is a private, non-profit organization whose mission is to organize and sponsor educational, charitable and social activities.
