College Bound Veterans:

The Fund for Veterans’ Education Delivers Real Money

Fund for Veterans

The recently announced Fund for Veterans’ Education has one primary mission: To put more realistic educational scholarships into the hands of recent military veterans. The organization’s coffers are lined with millions of dollars in donations from corporations, private organizations and wealthy individuals—all in agreement that until there is a realistic GI Bill in place veterans have been fighting a losing battle when it comes to college education.

Right now the Fund for Veterans’ Education aims to hand out the most exceptional military scholarships possible for academic years 2008 and 2009. Founders hope that with additional donations the scholarship drive may continue.

The new scholarship was introduced on November 15, 2007 along with an initial 11 recipients. A worthy goal for the remainder of 2008/9 is to make sure a veteran from every state is rewarded with a fistful of scholarship dollars.

Veterans, how can you qualify? You must:

  • Be a veteran of Operations Enduring Freedom or Iraqi Freedom–Afghanistan or Iraq.

  • Demonstrate financial need.
