The Eagle Fund Endowed Scholarship provides support for members of the Corps of Cadets who demonstrate leadership potential, qualities of high moral character, and are actively pursuing a commission in the U.S. Armed Forces.


In order for UNG's Corps of Cadets to continue to compete for top recruits, the Eagle Fund’s thrust is to provide meaningful scholarship to deserving cadets. The Eagle Fund was founded in 2011 and has grown a substantial donor base that currently includes the classes of 1960-1972.  Through support from 257 alumni, the Eagle Fund has become an endowed scholarship fund that will exist in perpetuity. To date, the Eagle Fund has provided more than $93,500 in scholarships to 35 worthy cadets.  

In 2019, the Eagle Fund will issue three scholarships, and in 2020, it will issue four. The long-term goal is to offer eight scholarships annually to aid the future leaders of our country.


The Eagle Fund has provided scholarships to 35 cadets since 2011.


Eagle Fund scholarship recipient, Cadet Addyson Albershardt led the UNG Ranger Challenge Team at the 2018 Sandhurst International Competition held at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. The Ranger Challenge Team placed fourth overall among 64 teams and brought home the ROTC Cup as the top-finishing ROTC team.



"The values instilled in us should remind us of our duty to help others pursue a military career."

- Oscar "Bo" Fears '68, Foundation Board Member and Eagle Fund Chairman
