Rear Admiral Chuck McGrail, U. S. Navy (ret) was, along with Rear Admiral Jim Carey, the co-founder of The Flag & General Officers' Network. Early in 2011, TFGON was approached by the Rear Admiral James J. Carey Foundation [ www.AdmiralCareyFoundation.org ] with an offer to fund a scholarship within TFGON in memory of Admiral McGrail, who passed away in early 2000.
The scholarship is focused on youth leadership training for military veterans and is meant for military veteran college juniors, seniors, and graduate students with an interest in careers in national and international public policy or public service. These scholarships will be used to fund an annual fellowship with a view towards providing training and education and credentials to enable the recipient to pursue a career path in federal service or related national public policy work and/or public service. To apply for an Admiral McGrail Memorial Scholarship, contact Rear Admiral Kirk Foster, US NAVY (ret) at firstname.lastname@example.org for details. Rear Admiral Foster is TFGON's Program Director for the Admiral McGrail Scholars Program.
A listing of the current Admiral McGrail Scholars is shown below, including copies of their MidTerm & Final Reports so TFGON members can see the benefits these exceptional military veterans are receiving from our program. We have had several graduates of the McGrail Scholars in attendance at TFGON's Quarterly Networking Receptions and it is expected that these fine examples of youth leadership will serve as mentors for all the future scholars participating in this program.
