Military veterans have selflessly served and risked their lives to protect the United States.
As a result, many veterans now live with disabilities or trauma. Roughly 10-20% of veterans experience PTSD, with rates varying based on service era.
In recognition of all that veterans have done for our country, this scholarship seeks to support the children of U.S. military veterans so they can pursue higher education.
Any student who is the child of a veteran and is currently enrolled in an undergraduate or trade school program may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, please tell us how being the child of a veteran has shaped your career goals.
How has your experience as the son or daughter of a veteran shaped your career aspirations?
The application deadline is Jun 4, 2022. Winners will be announced on Jul 4, 2022.
The scholarship award is $500 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jul 4, 2022. 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.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
