Veterans United Foundation, formed and fully funded by Veterans United Home Loans and its employees, strives to enhance lives by recognizing the selfless contributions of service members and their families through support of such individuals in need.
Despite the aid of benefits like the GI Bill, the ever-increasing expense of a post-secondary degree is one of the greatest challenges facing so many of our nation’s finest, and in an effort to address this need, Veterans United Foundation has established the Veterans United Foundation Scholarship program.
The program's primary goal is to assist military service members and their families by awarding five bi-annual $2,000 scholarships to help pay for tuition and books.
Eligibility for these scholarships is based on a student's connection with the military. Applicants should be one of the following:
-Active-duty service member
-Spouse of military member or veteran
-Surviving spouse of a fallen soldier
-Child of a military member or veteran
Potential applicants should be enrolled in an accredited post-secondary school or planning to attend one the following fall. Applicants will need to submit an essay of 750 words or less based on one of three prompts provided by the Veterans United Foundation. Applicants must also submit transcripts reflecting a minimum 2.5 grade point average on 4.0 scale.
Application and essay submission will be received April 1-30th in the spring and October 1-31st in the fall. Winners will be announced by May 15th and November 15th
