Eligibility, Dues, and Forms

"To you, Sons of Confederate Veterans, we will commit the vindication of the Cause for which we fought.  To your strength will be given the defense of the Confederate soldier's good name, the guardianship of his history, the emulation of his virtues, the perpetuation of those principles which he loved and which you love also and those ideals which made him glorious which you also cherish."

Who Can Join

Male descendants of Confederate soldiers, sailors, or marines, aged 12 or older, are eligible for membership.  Young gentlemen, aged birth to 12, are eligible for Cadet membership.  Upon reaching age 12, Cadets may opt to become full members.  Cadet members pay only $10 per annum.  They do not pay Division or Camp dues.

Benefits of Membership

Members have the opportunity to preserve and defend the heritage and legacy of Confederate soldiers through SCV activities at the Camp, Division, Army, and national levels.

Members receive a subscription to the national magazine, The Confederate Veteran, and a subscription to the Arizona Division newsletter, The Rebel Yell.  Members receive a membership certificate suitable for framing.  Cadet members also receive a membership certificate but do not receive The Confederate Veteran.

Members are eligible for academic scholarships and medical research grants.

Division Recruiting Officer

Current Members

Members desiring a camp transfer should file a camp transfer form through their camp adjutant to register a change in camp affiliation.

Members desiring a "supplemental membership" certificate, to honor an additional qualifying ancestor, should use the standard SCV application and write "supplemental" across the top of the form.  A $10 fee is required and both the application and payment should be routed through the camp adjutant.
How to Join

To join, an applicant must submit a completed membership application form and proof of his ancestor's service to the Confederacy.  He must also list how he is related to his ancestor. 

The SCV does not require birth, marriage, or death certificates to prove lineage--just a simple genealogical chart showing the relationship.  Proof of the ancestor's service may take many forms.  Confederate service records from the national archives, state archives, or Fold3.com are the preferred documents.  Confederate pension records may also serve as proof.
