The June 15, 2015 deadline is quickly approaching, but outstanding former United States servicemen and servicewomen still have time to apply for our first annual $1,000 Veterans’ educational scholarship.
The 2015 Van Sant Law Veterans’ Scholarship is available to all U.S. military veterans living in Georgia who are attending a college or university and who have been honorably discharged from service. The winner will be chosen by our panel based on his or her past military experience, as well as on his or her future plans and educational goals, as outlined in their application materials and essay.
To apply for the scholarship, each veteran must include:
- A copy of your military record (DD Form 214).
- A copy of your student ID or other proof of college enrolment.
- Proof of Georgia residency.
- A 500-word essay outlining your experience in the military and your educational goals.
All application materials should be sent to [email protected] on or before June 15, 2015. The winner of the scholarship will be announced two weeks later on June 30, 2015. The $1,000 scholarship prize will be given directly to the winner to be spent on school expenses including tuition, books, fees, or living expenses.
Saluting & Supporting Georgia’s Military Veterans
When planning our inaugural educational scholarship fund, the team at Van Sant Law decided that there was no more deserving group in our community or across the country than the brave men and women who have served in the military. Especially in recent years, as millions of young men and women have served overseas in places of conflict including Iraq and Afghanistan, we cannot thank service members enough for their sacrifices, courage, and resolve.
Even though many veterans return to school with the help of military-related educational assistance programs, many still struggle with financial difficulties, such as school-related expenses and living expenses. Many veterans also struggle with continuing their education while raising young families or living with disabilities associated with their military service. It is our hope that this scholarship shows our support and care for Georgia veterans and makes their road to a new degree smoother and easier.
