The Air, Space and Missile Defense Association (ASMDA) announces a new college scholarship program in honor of Lieutenant General Larry Dodgen to commemorate the life, values, career, and commitment to excellence of a great soldier and a dear friend of the Air, Space and Missile Defense Community. This year we will be offering a college scholarship to one deserving student in the Air, Space and Missile Defense community through the Lieutenant General Larry Dodgen Memorial University Scholarship Program. This scholarship will be presented at the annual Space and Missile Defense Conference held at the Von Braun Center during August 8-10, 2017.

The Lieutenant General Larry Dodgen Memorial University Scholarship is available to currently serving Army Active Duty Soldiers, Reserve Soldiers, and National Guard Soldiers currently working for or assigned to SMDC, AMCOM, PEO Missiles and Space, MDA, MSIC, and NASA Marshall Space Flight Center. The scholarship is also available to these soldiers’ spouses and children.
