Hot off the press, VeteranAid.org has announced its first scholarship program:
“VeteranAid.org is pleased to announce its first scholarship program for advancement in higher education. The Veterans Benefits Scholarship will award three $2,000 scholarships to college students enrolled in an associate’s degree, bachelor’s degree or graduate level program at an accredited 2-year college or 4-year university during the 2016-2017 academic year. These students will be awarded based on their innovative ideas to improve the world of military veterans benefits.
VeteranAid.org offers detailed information on a veterans’ pension benefit called Aid and Attendance (A&A) that helps senior veterans pay for costs of care. If veterans or their spouses require assisted living care in a community or at home, VeteranAid.org gives them the information they need to apply for the A&A benefit themselves. This Aid and Attendance benefit can provide up to $2,120 per month to veteran applicants.
In order to create more awareness of the benefits available to military veterans and open up the floor for more ideas of how our military should be helped in their times of need, VeteranAid.org created the Veterans Benefits Scholarship. The Aid and Attendance benefit that VeteranAid.org prides itself on being the leading source of information on has helped thousands of veterans and families get help with their costs of care, but there is always room for improvements in these types of benefits.
We want to continue to urge college students to consider the sacrifices our military has made for our country and think about ways we can give back to and improve the ways we currently help the military men and women who have served the United States.
Veterans and military are urged to apply for the scholarships, although it is open to all current college students.
VeteranAid.org is requesting the widest possible distribution of the scholarship opportunity and urges readers to get the scholarship into the hands of as many veterans and students as possible.
The scholarships will be awarded to students who can best answer the following essay prompt:
Give an example of one veterans benefit and explain how it helps senior veterans. Then propose your own benefit to help senior veterans.
The deadline to enter is December 31, 2016. Essay topic and details can be found at http://www.veteranaid.org/apply.php at the bottom of the page.
