Fort Bragg employer the Corvias Foundation announced last week that it has awarded college scholarships worth $50,000 to Aiyana Myers in North Carolina and Declan Faherty in Rhode Island, both of whom are children of Corvias employees. This is the 18th year that Corvias Foundation has awarded scholarships to support the educational goals of exceptional seniors. Aiyana and Declan plan to attend four-year institutions this fall.

Aiyana plans to attend North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, the largest of the historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in the nation, to pursue a degree in social work. Her goal is to encourage and inspire children to speak up about their home lives so she can help get them placed with families that meet their needs. Aiyana volunteers at a food pantry, where she helps to prepare and serve meals. She is the child of Michelle Matthewson-Woodard, program office administrator for Corvias at Fort Bragg.

“I believe that by being awarded this scholarship, I can further my education without leaving so much financial stress on my parents,” said Myers in a press release. “My parents are my biggest supporters and always tell me to shoot for the stars.”

Since its establishment in 2006, the Corvias Foundation has granted approximately $15 million in scholarships to children of Corvias employees and military children and spouses. This round of scholarships follows the Foundation’s March 2023 news that it awarded scholarships to 24 military spouses in cooperation with the National Military Family Association.

"At Corvias, we believe in the power of education to transform lives, and we are honored to support the academic aspirations of these exceptional students,” said Chris Wilson, chief executive officer for Corvias in a press release. “We are proud to continue our legacy of investing in the future of military families and our employees’ children through Corvias Foundation’s scholarship program, which provides valuable financial assistance at the educational institutions of the students’ choice."
