2023- 20224 Alfred C. Serrato Memorial Scholarship Program


    The annual Alfred C. Serrato Scholarship Program is open to current Combat Infantrymen's Association members, their spouse, children or grandchildren who will be enrolled in a full-time course of study during the 2023-2024 academic year.  


    The Scholarships are graded based on the completion of the Application and the Essay response. The purpose of the Scholarship is to raise awareness of the sacrifices made by those who have earned our beloved Combat Infantryman Badge.  The Combat Infantrymen's Association, Inc. member will be asked by the applicant to share their story.  Essays will be judged anonymously by a panel of members who are not related to, or associated in anyway to the participants.


    The Scholarship Program provides a First Place Award of $2500; Second Place of $1500 and Third Place of $1000.  The Scholarship is awarded to full time students attending an accredited Trade School, Community College or other institutions of higher learning.  The winners will be announced by COB August 15, 2023.
