The Courageous Sacrifice Scholarship for Constitutional Defense is meant to honor those service members who have displayed academic excellence and bravery in fighting to safeguard the foundational American values which every service member has sworn an oath to defend. The recipient of this $2000 scholarship was Blake Page, former West Point cadet who was compelled to resign from the United States Military Academy by the pervasive Christian fundamentalist presence at the Academy – but not before blowing the lid off of the Christian fundamentalist regime at West Point.
The Freedom’s Promise Research Grant for the Advancement of Religious Liberty is a $2000 gift meant to fund scholarly research that reflects MRFF’s mission. MRFF could think of no more deserving candidate for this tribute than Doctor David Mullin, a former associate professor of economics at the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA). Dr. Mullin gained the ire of certain USAFA administrators for his forthright defense of cadets’ constitutionally assured rights to carry on their studies unmolested by coercive Christian proselytization.
