Lockheed Martin Fighting Spirit Scholarship Program


Service and Sacrifice

The Fighting Spirit Scholarship Program’s mission is to empower disabled veterans to regain confidence once lost on the battlefield by providing educational courses, career training and physical activity programs that enhance individual and professional growth.

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.

To help give back to those who give so much for our nation, Lockheed Martin is dedicated to supporting service members with programs that improve their lives and the lives of their families, enhance educational and training opportunities, and honor their selfless duty to our country.

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. The program gives veterans the opportunity to showcase their enduring fighting spirit in the presence of their families, colleagues and a grateful nation.

Fighting Spirit Scholarship recipients are chosen from applicants to the Warrior Sailing Program and Able Flight.
