MOAA-HA contributes resources to a number of outreach programs that touch all veterans and surviving spouses throughout the Houston area. We also support local Universities and High Schools that host ROTC and JROTC programs. Some of the more prominent community programs we support are explained further below.

If you would like to help support these programs you can contact the MOAA-HA liaisons identified below. You can also make a contribution directly to the chapter earmarked for a specific program.

ROTC Scholarship

Each year MOAA-HA awards a $1000 scholarship from our Chapter’s funded Endowment to cadets selected by the University of Houston (UH). Deadline for nominations is March 31 of each year.

Funds are available for outstanding cadets who want to become military officers, but require tuition assistance. MOAA-Houston Area and UH have entered into an Endowment Agreement to support ROTC cadets who drill at UH. The purpose of the Endowment Fund is a solid, growing base that makes grants from the earnings of the Fund.

All Army and Air Force cadets at all Houston universities–including HCU, Rice, TSU, Saint Thomas, and UH (and drill at UH). UH is one of the strongest supporters of Air Force and Army ROTC in the nation, and the Houston Corps of Cadets is second in number only to Texas A&M. These cadets want to join the ranks of the finest men and women in America in the U.S. Armed Forces, but many do not have the resources to remain in school.

This permanent Endowment Fund provides grants–not loans–to outstanding cadets, selected by the professors of Military Science and Tactics, for their training in the Houston Corps of Cadets. The funds are administered and invested by the UH’s fund managers, and donations are fully deductible for tax purposes.
