Scholarship sponsored by American Legion Legacy

Since the inception of The American Legion Legacy Scholarship in 2001 following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, The American Legion has offered its support to the children of fallen post-9/11 servicemembers through this scholarship. Beginning with the 2017 award year, The American Legion expanded the scholarship to include children of VA-rated, post-9/11 veterans with a combined disability rating of 50 percent or higher. Our organization remains committed to honoring the memory and service of our fallen and disabled comrades by ensuring their children are afforded the best possible educational opportunities.

Financial Aid Offered
The total amount of Legacy Scholarship money to be awarded varies based on the amount of donations received each year and the total amount of income derived from interest on the trust each year. Fifty percent of each amount is made available for awards each year – beginning with the 2017 award year. Each award made is good for one year and may be up to $20,000. The amount of each award is determined by the financial need of that student as determined by fiscal information provided by the applicant during the application process. Depending on the amount of total money available for award, the number of applicants and the total need in a given year, all applicants might not receive an award. However, The American Legion will strive to offer as many awards as possible.
