Since 1899, the VFW has been the nation’s leading veterans service organization in the fight to better the lives of all those who’ve worn the uniform of the United States military. Today's veterans can face any number of obstacles while furthering their education. Taking advantage of all the benefits you've earned and deserve shouldn't be one of them. This is why we have teamed up with Student Veterans of America and Sport Clips Haircuts to provide the assistance you need.
The VFW's "Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship" provides service members and veterans with the financial assistance they need to complete their educational goals without incurring excessive student loan debt. Applications are open twice a year for the fall and spring semesters. Applicants must be U.S. citizens who are retired, honorably discharged, active duty, or a member of the National Guard or Reserve; have completed Basic Training and follow-on training (Advanced Individual Training, technical school, etc.); separated with or currently hold a military rank of E-5 or below; demonstrate a need for financial assistance and participate in, be accepted to or currently enrolled in a VA-approved program or school at an accredited post-secondary institution.
