Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 16, 2012
The Disabled Veterans National Foundation (http://www.dvnf.org ), a non-profit veterans service organization that focuses on helping men and women who serve and return home wounded or sick after defending our safety and our freedom, announces that applications for this $1,000 veterans scholarship are now being accepted until November 1st, 2012.
Selections will be made in December, and the recipients will have checks mailed directly to the accredited institution of their choice at the beginning of January prior to the start of the spring semester. The DVNF Scholarship Program was launched in 2011 to help veterans in need of tuition assistance. Due to the strong response and success of the first round of scholarships awarded, DVNF decided to continue the program for this year.
“This is such a valuable program because there are cases where the GI Bill does not cover certain expenses,” said Precilla Wilkewitz, President of DVNF. “Several recipients of the scholarship last year needed this extra bit of funding because the GI Bill did not cover all out-of-state tuition costs, or, in other cases, it would not pay for all of the costs if the veteran chose to attend a private school. There were also many veterans who had already used their GI Bill and needed assistance for graduate school.
“I want to express my sincere gratitude to your for making the DVNF Scholarship possible. I was thrilled to learn of my selection for this honor and I am deeply appreciative of your support” said one last year’s recipients. “The financial assistance you provided will be of great help to me in paying my educational expenses, and it will allow me to concentrate more of my time for studying!”
