Each year, DAV offers $75,000 in scholarships to be used toward any accredited institution of higher learning, including universities, colleges, community colleges and vocational schools.
The DAV Jesse Brown Memorial Youth Scholarship, named after the late Secretary of Veterans Affairs and former DAV leader, provides scholarships to volunteers age 21 or younger who have volunteered a minimum of 100 hours through the DAV Voluntary Service Program or DAV’s Local Veterans Assistance Program (LVAP). Eligible hours must be credited to DAV.
Nominations for this award may be submitted by the Voluntary Services Program Manager at a VA medical center, DAV Departments and Chapters, or the student may complete a self-nomination form.

This is a great way to gain professional experience, complete high school or educational requirements, possibly earn financial assistance toward higher education and make a positive change in the lives of our nation’s heroes.
If you have an interest in volunteering as a part of the DAV team, please contact the DAV Voluntary Services Department by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 877-426-2838.
