American Legion Auxiliary believes that investing in the education of our young people is investing in the future of our country. That is why the American Legion Auxiliary offers a number of different scholarships available to traditional and non-traditional students. All scholarships need to be fully completed and returned by their specific date listed
American Legion Auxiliary National Scholarships Children of Warriors National Presidents' Scholarship - It is important to acknowledge the sacrifices of our service members who preserve our freedom, but that is not enough. The sacrifices of the children of those who served should also be honored. Providing funds to assist these children so they can pursue higher education is a concrete way of showing how much we, as a nation, care.
Spirit of Youth Scholarship - The Spirit of Youth Scholarship Fund is an umbrella that supports three separate scholarship opportunities for participants in American Legion Auxiliary programs. One is for American Legion Auxiliary Junior members; another is for the Honorary National Junior President; and one is for the participants in the American Legion Auxiliary Girls Nation program. We encourage all eligible young women to take advantage of these scholarship opportunities and apply.
Non-Traditional Student Scholarship - Getting a job or staying competitive in today's workplace involves showing employers you have the skills and experience to get the job done. In many cases, returning to college is a must. The American Legion Auxiliary's goal is to do all we can to make that happen, and that's what the Non-Traditional Student Scholarship is all about. This scholarship helps people who are part of The Legion Family pursue a college degree later in life or allow them to pick up where they left off when their studies were interrupted.
