Time is running out this month to get applications in for the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) Educational Scholarship Program.

The program provides assistance to PVA members and their immediate family members to help with a post-secondary education.

The 2012–2013 scholarships will be in the amount of $1,000 for full-time students and $500 for part-time students for an academic year. The scholarship awardees must verify their status as a full-time or part-time student in an accredited college
or university.

The program is open to all PVA members, their spouses and unmarried children under the age of 24 and who depend (as defined by the IRS) on the member for principal support.

Individuals who wish to apply for the scholarship program can download the application at, or call  800-424-8200, ext. 776, or email to request an application be sent via mail.

A personal statement must be attached to the application and may not exceed two pages. It should contain intended courses of study and long- and short-term goals. A copy of the personal statement must be attached to each of the six copies submitted.

A letter of recommendation from a faculty member or other school official should accompany the application. Letters should be forwarded directly to PVA for inclusion with the application.

Completed applications must be returned to PVA no later than June 17. Accompanying documents will include an official transcript for each school listed in the application.
