Veterans are indispensable to our world.
Unfortunately, due to the nature of their work, veterans are often exposed to experiences that put them at risk for developing mental health-related challenges and issues.
These mental health challenges can make it harder to transition back to everyday life, including pursuing further educational opportunities.
While there are many resources that can support vets, pets have been shown to have a remarkable effect on helping with mental health-related challenges, including PTSD.
As one small way to support the veteran community, the Pettable Veteran Student Debt grant exists to help vets to pay down their debt and take care of their mental health.
All military veterans with student debt who are passionate about mental health and the potential for pets to aid the mental well-being of vets are eligible to apply.
Please tell us why mental health is important to you?

The winner will be publicly announced on Dec 31, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
