Every year the Mansfield Lahm Military Families Scholarship Program awards scholarships to children, grandchildren, or spouses of an active or retired 179th Airlift Wing member. To submit an application, they must write a letter explaining their desires for continued education, goals and objectives for their future, and tell what getting this scholarship would mean to them. A panel of judges ranks the applicants and grants are awarded based on scholarship, character, leadership and need.

This year, six $750 scholarships were awarded. The MLMF Scholarship Committee wishes these individuals the best in their future endeavors and congratulates them on the accomplishments they have already achieved.
