Lockheed Martin Fighting Spirit Scholarship Program
Together, We Have An Unbreakable Fighting Spirit.
Approximately 20 percent* of our U.S. military service members return home today with a service-related disability. While Lockheed Martin openly welcomes our brave men and women in uniform to join our team every day, we are always looking for ways to do more.
Through the Fighting Spirit Scholarship Program, Lockheed Martin provides two wounded veterans the opportunity to participate in life-enrichment programs at Able Flight and Warrior Sailing Program at no cost to them. These organizations provide training for disabled veterans to fly, sail and regain confidence lost on the battlefield.
Fighting Spirit Scholarship recipients are chosen from applicants to the Warrior Sailing Program and Able Flight on an annual basis. Read the official press release.
