While DAV Auxiliary units actively participate in programs such as Americanism, Community Service, Junior Activities, Legislative, and VAVS, national programs rely on mandates and generous donations.

Since 1931, the DAV Auxiliary has proudly encouraged education advancement.

The Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary 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 $2,500. 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!

To learn how you can help, contact DAV Auxiliary National Headquarters, 860 Dolwick, Erlanger, KY 41018. Toll free: 833-368-1220.


Completed applications, with applicable attachments, may be sent via email to¬†[email protected] by the postmark date.

Article II of the DAV Auxiliary Constitution codifies the purpose of the organization to include, in part, advancing “the interests and work for the betterment of all wounded, injured and disabled veterans and their families…” In carrying out this stated purpose, DAV Auxiliary has modified the Family Assistance Program to assist ill or injured disabled veterans, their spouses and their children in times of dire financial need.

Requestor must be an ill or injured disabled veteran, their spouse or their child. Funds will be payable directly to the financial need only, not the individual. The one-time maximum payment will not exceed $1,000.

Applicant is to complete this application and submit the necessary documentation such as copies of outstanding utility bills, mortgage/rent payment, medical bills, etc. Consideration will only be given to requests deemed essential/emergency in nature per the program guidelines and once all proper documentation has been received. In order that we can verify the balance owed, complete contact information must be provided along with a signed consent form.

The DAV Auxiliary National Finance Committee shall determine an amount to be disbursed in a calendar year. Once exhausted, no further distribution will be granted. DAV Auxiliary has the final determination on what is considered emergency and/or essential.

For additional information, contact DAV Auxiliary national headquarters at 833.368.1220 or [email protected].
