Military Affiliation Scholarships

Are you a veteran or currently-serving active member of a U.S. Military branch? This directory contains scholarships for students who have a military connection or affiliation. The branches of the U.S. Military sponsor many educational scholarships for active-duty members and honorably discharged veterans. You'll find scholarships offered by private organizations in honor of veterans as well.


Military affiliation extends beyond those who have served, and includes the dependents and spouses of military veterans, active-duty soldiers and those who lost their lives in combat. It can even sometimes extend to the grandchildren of former or deceased military members. If you have a parent or grandparent who served or is serving in the U.S. Military, then selecting the Military Affiliation box on your profile will qualify you for these scholarship opportunities.
