The Feldman Law Firm will be awarding an educational scholarship for the benefit of disabled veterans. The scholarship will be for $1,000, and it will provide tuition assistance for the successful applicant. It is being offered to encourage disabled veterans to continue their education, and provide financial assistance toward that goal.
Disabled veterans of the Armed Forces of the United States often face a difficult transition when their military service ends. We believe they must have support waiting for them when they return to their civilian lives. This is particularly true when military service has disrupted their schooling. The scholarship being offered by our firm is intended to assist in that transition. By providing this financial support, we hope to make it easier for a disabled veteran to re-enter the educational sphere, and thereby enhance their career opportunities.
The $1,000 disabled veteran scholarship is offered to eligible applicants who wish to attend a trade or vocational school, or a college or junior college. Applicants do not have to be enrolled in a school at the time they submit their application. We do require, however, that the scholarship funds be used within a year after the date on which it is awarded. The winning applicant will provide us with a tuition invoice from the educational institution he or she has chosen, and we will pay $1,000 directly to the school.
In order to apply for the scholarship, you must be a veteran of any branch of the Armed Forces of the United States. You must also have a disability rating of 30% or higher.
