VFW Commander-in-Chief Bill Thien stated, "This scholarship program is an important addition to the troop support offerings the VFW provides. Through it, we look forward to helping many service members succeed in the next chapter of their lives."
Hundreds of thousands of service veterans enter the workforce every year, facing many obstacles during their transition back to civilian life. Education and career opportunities are often some of the biggest challenges. Each Help a Hero Scholarship will provide up to $5000 in financial assistance to veterans who want to further their education during or after their military service. Donations are being accepted at Sports Clips locations nationwide as well as online.
