VFW makes scholarships available
The Kansas Veterans of Foreign Wars and its Ladies Auxiliary, through its Endowment Association, annually offers college and vocational scholarships to the children and grandchildren of its membership.
Applicants must have a parent or grandparent who are actively affiliated with a VFW Post or Ladies Auxiliary in Kansas. Active means either a life member or a member whose dues were paid for the current membership year or were so at the time of his or her death.
Applications are submitted through the VFW Post or Ladies Auxiliary that can verify the membership affiliation of the parent or grandparent.
Applications are made available through local VFW posts or Ladies Auxiliaries. Applicants should ensure they have the current application form.
Completed application forms are returned to the VFW post or Ladies Auxiliary for review and to verify eligibility for submission to the VFW Endowment Association for consideration. The deadline for submission of applications is Feb. 1, 2007.
In 2006, the VFW Endowment Association had more than $32,000 in scholarship commitments. These scholarships ranged from $500 to $4,000 for durations of one to four years.
