If you know someone whose ancester served in the military during World War I, alert them to this scholarship. It’s available only at a few dozen American colleges and universities, but could provide some much-needed financial assistance.
Generally students must be considered needy to qualify, but these days that’s getting easier! The ancestor must have died in service or been honorably discharged. You must be able to document both the ancestor’s service, and the student’s blood relationship.

Inquiries should be addressed to the your school’s financial aid office.
