Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
To help meet the educational needs of veterans, 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, is offering a scholarship for $1,000 to veterans who are chosen for the honor.
2011 marked the inaugural year for DVNF’s scholarship program. After a successful launch of the program, DVNF is pleased to announce that it will be offering the scholarship again this year. The scholarship is paid directly to the accredited institution of the recipient’s choice. It is intended to pay for tuition costs that may not be covered by the GI Bill.
“This program was very successful last year. Many deserving veterans were awarded with this scholarship, helping them to achieve a good education,” said Raegan Rivers, Chief Administrative Officer of DVNF. “This is just another way DVNF is helping to assist our veterans, and we are excited to offer this scholarship again.”
DVNF will be accepting applications for this $1,000 scholarship from September 1-November 1. Decisions will be made in December, and checks will be mailed to the recipients’ colleges in January for the spring semester.
