The Paralyzed Veterans of America Educational Scholarship Program was established in 1986 to help members and their immediate families gain postsecondary education from accredited colleges and universities across America.
The organization’s primary goal has been to assist its members and their families in improving quality of life. This goal is reached through the wide variety of activities offered by Paralyzed Veterans, including support of programs designed to provide education and training for veterans with spinal cord injury and disease as well as their immediate families.
