The program will annually award one $2,000 scholarship to an IL Army National Guard dependent and one $2,000 scholarship to an IL Air National Guard dependent. In addition, a third $700 scholarship sponsored by USAA Insurance and Financial Services Company, will be awarded to a dependent of an enlisted IL National Guard NGAI member.
