Colonel's Leadership Initiative

Mission Statement:

We aim to give NH Civil Air Patrol cadets, who have already proven dedication and leadership to their community, state, and nation, the means to achieve their life goals by closing the gap between traditional scholarships and the ever-expanding costs to achieving these goals.


In recognition of Colonel Moran’s leadership, inspiration, and dedication to his Cadets and their life goals, we have established this monetary scholarship that can be used for any purpose with the expressed desire that it be used in a fashion that assists with those goals. For example, the funds may be used to assist with uniform costs, National Cadet Special Activities, and Encampments. Or monetary assistance with acquiring a computer for school, help to pay for tuition, or even living expenses while the recipient attends college. The amount awarded to a deserving candidate is based on need, merit, and available funds. The Wing Vice Commanders and the Chief of Staff will select the cadets and the amount of the scholarship.
