There are hundreds of scholarships available to veterans and their dependents in addition to their VA benefits. When considering your alternatives to financing an education,you must take the time to research the alternatives very carefully. There are hundreds of scholarships that are not given out every year because no one applies for them. Take the time to research scholarships and grants and you may be surprised how quickly you can finance your education.

This is only a sampling of the scholarships available.

The first has dozens of different scholarships for different branches of the service.
