Scholarship Program

Graduate in wheelchairParalyzed Veterans of America (PVA) originally founded the scholarship program in 1986. Since that time, we have awarded over $300,000 in scholarships.

This program was originally devised to provide some financial reprieve for PVA members and their families so that they may achieve their goals in the academic arena. The result of this competitive process is a monetary scholarship to assist them in reaching their post-secondary educational goals.
