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!

DAV Auxiliary is fulfilling their ongoing commitment to serving the educational needs of those we serve by providing tuition/course reimbursement, based on available program funds, to ill and injured veterans and their immediate family members seeking education opportunities at education facilities other than accredited colleges/universities.
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, the DAV Auxiliary Service Program has been re-developed to assist surviving spouses of service-connected disabled veterans in times of dire financial need. In many instances, the surviving spouse is faced with an emergency need to pay outstanding utility bills, mortgage/rent, medical bills, etc., and this program can offer a measure of hope to lessen the weight of despair. The one-time maximum payment will be payable directly to the financial need on behalf of the surviving spouse.
Service Program funding is reliant upon national mandates and generous donations and in order to sustain the fund, the national finance committee shall determine a maximum amount to be granted during a calendar year.
For additional information, contact DAV Auxiliary national headquarters at 833-368-1220, or [email protected]. The Service Program will also provide financial support to ill and injured veterans and their families through select DAV-sponsored events as deemed appropriate and with the approval of the national finance committee.
