PVA’s primary goal is to assist its members and their families in improving the quality of their life. This goal is addressed through a wide variety of activities, including support of programs designed to provide education and training.

The Educational Scholarship Program was established to assist PVA members and their immediate families in gaining a post-secondary education.

The following full-time students have each been awarded a $1,000 scholarship to help them pursue their higher education goals.
