Did You Know?
Better Chance Scholarship!!!
In January 1998, the BETTER CHANCE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM was established. This was one of the ways that the associates could help better the lives of the veterans and their families not only today but for years to come. The program targets the average student who would not be eligible for an academic scholarship and could not afford the escalating costs of an education, but did want to attend college.
As funds permit, scholarships in the amount of $1000, $750, or $500 will be awarded to students who are in financial need to pursue post-secondary education. http://www.avva.org/forms/program/homelessgrant.pdf
