The KBR Honorary Scholarship is awarded annually in perpetuity to a deserving son or daughter of a United States Army soldier or to the spouse of an active duty enlisted soldier.
KBR has established this scholarship to assist Army family members through a generous donation and pledge of funding to the Army Scholarship Foundation. In presenting this award, Senior Vice President of Operations, Maintenance and Logistics for KBR Lieutenant General Joseph M. Cosumano, United States Army, Retired, emphasized the importance of corporate support for Army families. He said "our nation's soldiers are defending our way of life, often under the most dangerous conditions to protect the rights and freedoms which all Americans enjoy. Through KBR's support of this scholarship for Army family members, we are able in a small way to thank our soldiers for the many sacrifices they and their families make every day on behalf of our nation."
