Annual SHGTUS Education Scholarships
7 years ago
It’s that time of year again. On behalf of the Society of the Honor Guard, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier (SHGTUS), I’m proud to announce our annual education scholarships.
The SHGTUS awards scholarships to benefit Tomb Guards and their families, and individuals sponsored by a Tomb Guard. The scholarships are part of our awareness and assistance programs, and speak to essence of who we are as an organization.
The scholarships available are the:
Neale Cosby Scholarship
The Neale Cosby Scholarship was founded in 2002 in honor of former Tomb Guard and SHGTUS Founder Neale Cosby.
The Scholarship is open to current and former Tomb Guards and their family members.
Adam Dickmyer Memorial Scholarship
The Adam Dickmyer Memorial Scholarship was founded in 2010 in honor of former Tomb Guard and Lifetime Member Adam Dickmyer, who was killed in action in Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom.
The scholarship is open to current and former Tomb Guards only.
SHGTUS Freedom Scholarship
The SHGTUS Freedom Scholarship was founded in 2012 in honor of all unknown war heroes.

Did you know?
Is the rifle that the Sentinel carries loaded?
Tomb Guards carry fully functional M14 rifles. Given the current climate surrounding the relatively recent tragic events in Canada (attack upon the guard at the Canadian War Memorial), we will no longer be answering questions relating to specifics regarding current security and armament at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. We appreciate your understanding.
Rest assured, that the US Army has the post secured as it has been since we started guard duty at the shrine in 1926.
