Offered by The American Legion
The American Legion Legacy Scholarship annually awards up to $20,000 and up to $5,000, respectively, to the children of U.S. military members who died while on active duty on or after Sept. 11, 2001, or children of post-9/11 veterans who have been assigned a combined disability rating of 50 percent or greater by the Department of Veterans Affairs. The scholarship was designed to fulfill a financial gap remaining after all federal and state educational grants/scholarships available to eligible applicants have been utilized.
