Since 1961, the Hanscom Spouses Club has offered scholarships to military dependent children and spouses. The intent of these scholarships is to support graduating high school seniors and spouses of members of the U.S. armed forces.

The Hanscom Spouses Club raised more than $42,000 this year from the Minuteman Thrift Shop, Air Force Association Paul Revere Chapter #178 and Oasis Systems.

Organizers said that without these contributions, and the work by its members through the Thrift Shop and scholarship committee, the scholarship program would not be possible.
