While DAV Auxiliary units actively participate in programs such as Americanism, Community Service, Junior Activities, Legislative, and VAVS (refer to the DAV Auxiliary Manual for details), national programs rely on mandates and generous donations.
Education Scholarship Program
Since 1931, the DAV Auxiliary has proudly encouraged and assisted members of our organization to further their education. From that time until August 2010, the organization offered interest-free education loans to DAV Auxiliary life members.
The Disabled American Veterans Education Scholarship Program was established to provide education scholarships for students attending an accredited college, university, or vocational school in the United States or Territory. Those full-time students who meet the established guidelines may qualify for a scholarship up to $1,500. Part-time students who meet the established guidelines may qualify for a scholarship up to $750.
Funding for this program comes from a designated portion of mandates paid by units and state departments, but it has been the generous support of our donors that has provided the opportunity for continued education. We all can truly make a difference!
