The Veterans of Foreign Wars Military Scholarship Program aims to help the VFW members who are currently serving in uniform or have been discharged within the 3 years before the December 31 deadline.
VFW annually selects 25 military scholars (five members each from Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard). Each scholar will receive $3000 scholarship money to support their desire to continue their education.
Applicants should submit the completed application form along with the copy of their VFW membership card, letter from current Post Commander, legible list of members they recruited and Photostat of auxiliary membership of spouse if any. These documentations are necessary to assess the scholarship applications because each of these has corresponding points.
The application form can be downloaded here and should be mail at VFW Military Scholarship, VFW National Headquarters, 406 West 34th Street, Kansas City, MO 64111.
