2023 Scholarship Opportunity for Veterans!

We are thrilled to offer two deserving veterans the chance to receive a $2,500 scholarship to support their educational journey while managing work, family, and school responsibilities. Take a look at the application criteria below to see if you qualify:

The Application

  • Only students currently enrolled at a local community college, university or trade school will be considered and awarded a scholarship.
  • Once an application has been submitted, you will NOT be able to make changes. Incomplete applications will not be considered for scholarships. Please review your application thoroughly prior to submitting. You may save your application and return to it as many times as you would like until you feel ready to submit.
  • Applications will not be accepted after August 31, 2023.
  • There is a 45-minute time out feature while working on the application. Every time you go to the next page you start with another 45 minutes. As you answer each question and navigate to the next question, your information is saved. If the application times out due to inactivity you will lose unsaved information. You will get a brief warning before the application closes.
