Scholarship Resources

Not all veterans get 100% eligibility through the VA for various reasons. Even those with 100% are eligible for a myriad of additional scholarship options. You are as entitled to scholarships based on your academic performance and financial need as any other student. Many non profits and businesses support veterans in higher education. Your military service probably has an affinity group offering scholarships to its members. Receiving more scholarship funding allows you to use your G.I. Bill strategically to help accommodate your financial needs or save your federal VA benefits for graduate school. Here is a short list of some, not all, scholarship opportunities popular with CCRI Student Veterans. 

Scholarships for Dependents of Veterans (some include grandchildren and spouses of vets). For additional resources, check this link or apply directly through the Fisher House
