$2,500 Military College Scholarship

$2,500 military college scholarship

Veterans and active service men and women make sacrifices for our country every day. Because of their actions, America remains a nation of freedom and safety. We want to do everything we can to give back to those who have given so much for this country already. Not only are we committed to helping military veterans and their families get the best housing available; we also want to help these heroes and their loved ones do so much more. After all, a house is just a part of the American dream that our soldiers fought for. Pursuing an education so that you can get a career doing what you love for the rest of your life is another important part of it. We won’t stop at just housing when it comes to helping our heroes.      

That’s why Low VA Rates would like to present our semiannual $1,250 college scholarship to a deserving military student. The money will come in two increments during the fall and winter semesters of each year. The company is currently accepting applicants for the Fall 2017 college scholarship.
