The WVI Legacy Scholarship program recognizes the importance of education and helping the children of women veterans to achieve their educational goals. The program offers financial support to college bound students of women veterans seeking undergraduate degrees. Scholarships are awarded only to coursework from accredited institutions. Scholarships are based on merit, academic potential, community service, letters of recommendation, and need.
The Legacy Scholarships are available for tuition assistance, books, and fees for coursework at community college level or four year academic institutions. Selected scholarships recipients will be awarded up to $1000 each.
- Applicant must be a college bound child of a woman veteran who served honorably in any branch of the U.S. armed forces
- Applicant must be a graduating high school senior with a 2.5 Grade Point Average (GPA)
Selection of the Legacy Scholarship recipient(s) will be made by a Scholarship Committee appointed by the Board of Directors of Women Veterans Interactive. Each scholarship award will be evaluated and considered separately by the WVI Scholarship Committee.
Four Scholarships will be awarded every year. The scholarship funds may be used to assist with tuition, fees, books and school documented room and board. Scholarships are awarded only to students attending accredited institutions.
The funds will be sent to the academic institution for documented expenses and must be used in the academic year awarded. These funds may not be used for prior academic expenses. Applications must be postmarked no later than 15 April 2014.
