The Dependent Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1

Veterans’ Disability Lawyers at Fight4Vets are thrilled to announce The Dependent Scholarship! As a firm dedicated to improving the lives of disabled veterans, we are happy to provide a scholarship to the community which encourages military members and their families to pursue their education.

The truth is, many harsh realities can come with serving in the military such as, being away from loved ones, physical injuries, and emotional harm, to name a few. However, the military has also provided some much-needed structure and support for individuals and their families. Often, people’s lives improve with the skills and relationships they gain from serving.

For this $1,000 scholarship, we would like to focus on the positive aspect of serving, and we ask students and veterans to analyze how their life enhanced because of the military. Students on active duty, their close family members, and veterans are invited to apply. Tell us about your experience related to the military or how growing up in a military family has positively affected your life.

The deadline to apply is July 4, 2022. To learn more about eligibility and the application process, continue reading below.

Eligibility

A) The scholarship is open to any current high school senior, vocational student, college student, graduate student, or a veteran who is a legal resident of the United States residing in one of the 50 states or the District of Columbia.

B) Students must be enrolled in a vocational program or two to a five-year post-secondary institution for the upcoming Fall semester or be a veteran.

C) Employees of Fight4Vets, their immediate families (parent, child, sibling, and spouse), and persons living in the same households as such individuals (whether related or not), are not eligible to participate in the competition.

D) Candidates for this scholarship should have a minimum GPA of 3.0 or higher and good overall academic standing.

Application Requirements

A) The candidate must submit a 750 – 1,000 word essay response to the prompt: How has the military positively shaped you, whether from serving or growing up in a military family or being the spouse of someone in the military.

B) The candidate must submit a professional resumé that lists their experience, both professional and academic.

C) The candidate must submit a transcript from their current school. First-year college students, graduate students, or individuals who have recently transferred schools may submit an unofficial transcript from their current school, as well as the most recent official transcript from their prior school. High school students must also submit proof of acceptance to their college or university.

We will choose the recipient of The Dependent Scholarship during the month following the scholarship deadline.
