Looking for scholarship information

My father was in the merchant marines during wwII. My brother told me he remembers seeing something where the descendants of merchant marines can apply for scholarship $ for college. Anyone have any information on this??

You might want to ask the folks at: http://www.usmm.org/

WW II Merchant Mariners were awarded Veterans status recently.

Looks like there are scholarship bucks around depending on where you live and/or where you plan to go to school. Check these hits from my Google search: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-SearchBox&rlz=1I7GGIE_en&ei=UEPqS4mpFMW6rAe9lLHdCQ&sa=X&oi=spell&resnum=0&ct=result&cd=1&ved=0CBsQBSgA&q=wwII+merchant+marine+scholarships&spell=1&cts=1273643681140

It looks like documenting WWII Merchant Mariner service may be the tough part, at least where the VA Administration is concerned: http://www.warms.vba.va.gov/admin21/m21_1/mr/part3/subptiii/ch02/ch02_secf.doc

Good Luck.
