NETC Announces Military Family Scholarships

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - February 15, 2011) - NETC, a leading provider of educational travel programs, is offering a Military Family Scholarship in support of American troops and their families. Designed to help make the dream of an educational tour a reality for students whose parents are currently on active duty overseas, the $1000 scholarship applies to travel with NETC in 2012.

As NETC Founder and President Desmond Maguire explains, his personal experience as a father led him to the realization that many children may be unable to experience an NETC program because of their parents' service. "My son was recently deployed to Afghanistan with the U.S. Marines. While at Camp Lejeune to see him off, I was struck by how many children were there to say goodbye to a parent. I could only imagine the hardship those families would suffer in the coming months."
