FORT RILEY SPOUSES CLUB ANNOUNCES FY21 GRANT RECIPIENTS 

 

 

FORT RILEY, KANSAS, May 17, 2021 — In the fiscal year ending May 31, 2021, the Fort Riley Spouses Club (FRSC) distributed almost $40,000 in grants and scholarships supporting service members and their families in the Fort Riley area. Recipients were awarded in a ceremony at 2 PM on Friday, May 14, 2021 at Riley’s Community Center on Fort Riley or via mail if they were unable to attend. 

 

The FRSC awarded $18,750 in Community Assistance Grants to 28 applicants. The amounts awarded were based on each organization’s support of Fort Riley and surrounding communities and the applicant’s support of active duty service members and dependents of veterans and caregivers. Awards were prioritized based on the organization’s support of the immediate area vs. nationwide, and active duty, reserve, veterans, and needs-based, in that order. National-organization applicants were awarded amounts based on their impact on the local area. 

 

Additionally, the FRSC awarded $17,750 to the Combined Scholarship Fund of Greater Fort Riley, funding 10 college scholarships for 3 Fort Riley military spouses and 7 dependent children.
