Veterans United Foundation Scholarship

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 up to twenty $2,000 scholarships each semester to help pay for tuition and books.

Scholarship Eligibility

To be considered, the scholarship applicant must have a connection to the United States Military through falling into at least one of the following categories:

  • A current active-duty service member
  • Veteran of the United States Armed Forces
  • Spouse of a military member or veteran
  • Surviving spouse or child of a fallen soldier
  • Child of a military member or veteran

Applicants must also currently be pursuing a post-secondary degree (associates, bachelors, masters or doctorate) at an accredited college or university, or plan to attend a college or university the following academic year.

In addition, applicants must maintain a cumulative 2.5 grade point average on a 4.0 scale.

The Veterans United Foundation Scholarship can only be used toward school-related expenses (tuition and books).
