The Kelly Law Team (KLT) has announced that it will be awarding an educational scholarship for disabled veterans. The scholarship will consist of tuition assistance in the sum of $1,000 for disabled veterans who intend to continue their education.
The women and men of our Armed Forces deserve our respect and recognition. Many of our veterans have interrupted their education and careers to serve their country. When they complete their military service, the adjustment to civilian life can be difficult. And for disabled veterans, the challenges are often greater. The Kelly Law Team believes that assisting disabled vets who wish to continue their education will help ease the path to their ultimate career goals. This scholarship is designed to do just that.
About the Scholarship
This is a $1,000 scholarship being offered to disabled veterans. The winning applicant may use the award to defray the tuition cost at a secondary school, trade or vocational school, junior college, college or university. It is not required that an applicant be attending school at the time of the submission of his or her application. The successful applicant will have one year from the date of the announcement of the award to provide KLT with evidence of acceptance at a school. The funds will be paid directly to the education institution chosen by the applicant, to be applied to tuition.
