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 $2,000 scholarships per semester to help pay for tuition and books.

    ·    Surviving spouse or child of a fallen service member of the US Military
    ·    Child of a service member or veteran of the US Military
 
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 have a cumulative 2.5 grade point average on a 4.0 scale.
