Understanding our Cadet Scholarship Drill Competitions, Career Fairs, Mentoring Programs

The SandraFoundation Cadet Scholarship Drill Competition and Career Fairs are scholarship events devoted solely for the SandraFoundation Cadet Scholarship. Our goal is to raise Cadet Scholarship funds and distribute these funds to the winners of the associated drill competition. Cadets who participate in the SandraFoundation Cadet Scholarship Drill Competitions must first satisfy the entry criteria as well as the academic criteria. 

The cadet scholarship drill competition will conclude with a career fair or recommendation to join a specific career development mentoring program. The career fair or mentoring program will promote various professions supported by industry professionals and their associated employers. The SandraFoundation aspires to establish networking opportunities for the students and cadets supporting the scholarship drill competition.  ​
