Scholarship Program

Young woman who is a member of Paralyzed Veterans of AmericaParalyzed Veterans of America (Paralyzed Veterans) 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 Paralyzed Veterans 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

Applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Applicant must be either a Paralyzed Veterans member, the spouse of a Paralyzed Veterans member, or an unmarried child (under 24 years of age) who is dependent (as defined by the IRS) on the member for principal support. 
  • Applicant must be a citizen of the United States.   
  • Applicant must be accepted and enrolled as a full-time or part-time student in an accredited US college or university. 
  • Previous award recipients may apply.

The 2014-2015 Paralyzed Veterans of America scholarship application process is now closed. Please check back in April 2015 for the 2015-2016 application.
