Veterans United Foundation, formed and fully funded by Veterans United Home Loans and its employees, strives to enhance lives by recognizing the selfless contributions of service members and their families through support of such individuals in need.

Despite the aid of benefits like the GI Bill, the ever-increasing expense of a post-secondary degree is one of the greatest challenges facing so many of our nation’s finest, and in an effort to address this need, Veterans United Foundation has established the Veterans United Foundation Scholarship program.
The program’s primary goal is to assist military service members and their families by awarding up to twenty bi-annual $2,000 scholarships to help pay for tuition and books.

    ·    Child of a service member or veteran.
Applicants must also currently be  pursuing a post-secondary degree (associates, bachelors, masters or doctorate)  at an accredited college or university, OR plan to attend a college  or university the following academic year.
In addition, applicants must display financial need and maintain a cumulative 2.5 grade point average on a 4.0 scale. The Veterans United Foundation Scholarship can only be used toward school-related expenses (tuition and books).
