If you’ve served your country with honor and distinction, you deserve the chance to reach for your dreams. Recognizing the sacrifices of our brave servicemen and women, the federal government program has made the G.I. Bill available for veterans who want to attend college and earn a degree, along with the Post 9/11 G.I. Bill, passed into law in 2009. The federal government is not the only institution that wants to thank our veterans however; a number of other scholarships are offered through organizations like the American Legion, AMVET, and the Pat Tillman Foundation.
There are literally millions of dollars worth of veteran scholarships out there waiting for you to claim them. You can view an extensive list of scholarship opportunities for veterans below, including federal aid programs and awards offered by private organizations. No matter what branch you served in, and no matter what role you played in the military, you deserve the chance for the brightest possible future. You gave your all for your country; now is the time to accept the support which is being offered to you in thanks. Be sure to also check in with your local veterans’ community organization to see what other opportunities may be available to you.
