American Legion
American Legion - Samsung American Legion Scholarship Program
Worldwide electronics leader Samsung endowed a scholarship fund of $5 million to be administered by The American Legion in 1996. Meant to show appreciation for U.S. veterans who came to Korea's aid during its struggle against communist forces in the Korean War, the Samsung American Legion Scholarship Program established a series of scholarships derived from interest and other income from the principal amount. In 2013, nine $20,000 scholarships and 89 $1,100 scholarships were awarded. To date, the Samsung American Legion Scholarship has awarded more than $4.9 million to nearly 1,700 applicants. Samsung scholarships are for undergraduate study only and may be used for tuition, books, fees, and room and board. Winners are selected according to academic record, involvement in school and community activities, community service and financial need. Applicants who are direct descendants of Korean War veterans will receive special consideration.

American Legion - Legacy Scholarship Fund
The American Legion wants to ensure higher education is a possibility for children whose parents have been killed while serving our country. It is a civic duty to provide them with equal opportunity. The Legion offers its support through the Legacy Scholarship Fund. There has been a significant shortfall in government money allotted to children with parents lost in war. The government gives these children a college education stipend worth slightly more than $37,000. Taking into account living expenses, textbooks and rising tuitions, this benefit covers only a little more than half of college costs in the most affordable situation. And the price tag of higher learning will only continue to rise. The most conservative estimates predict a 5-percent annual increase, meaning that in 16 years the most affordable college education will be $132,800. Obviously, military compensation will not keep up. Aid offered: The amount of aid and number of awards depend upon the income derived from the trust. Scholarship recipients may re-apply for the award.

Brighter Horizon Foundation
Brighter Horizon Foundation serves as a critical resource to first-generation students and their families throughout the various stages of the high school-to-college transition process and beyond.

Through a pragmatic approach, Brighter Horizon constructively counters the anxieties and stresses often experienced by first-generation students to make a four-year college education possible. Services include: --Introduce students to the college search and transition process. --Provide training for college admissions criteria and planning for deadlines and required fees. --Offer guidance with college applications, testing and personal essay writing, including completing the Common Application. --Assist with financial documentation and completing the FAFSA forms. --Connect students with a larger network of successful first-generation individuals in four-year degree programs, helping foster mentorships and new relationships. --Grant scholarships for qualified students. --Offer mentorship throughout their college career and assistance with internships and full-time job searches.

Children's Scholarship Fund Philadelphia
Children's Scholarship Fund Philadelphia - Scholarship Program
Leverage CSFP is a leveraged investment in the future. Local contributions for scholarships are matched fifty cents to the donated dollar by the national office of the Children’s Scholarship Fund. Participating families are asked to pay a portion of tuition. The average family contributes approximately $1,200 per child, or about 50% of the tuition, thereby more than doubling the leverage of the original donation. Means-tested Scholarships are awarded on a sliding scale, depending on a family’s size and income. Poorer and/or larger families pay a smaller percentage of the tuition, while families with a somewhat higher income pay a greater portion. The minimum family contribution is $500 per year or 25% of tuition—whichever is greater. Early Research and experience tell us that the earlier a child begins receiving a solid education, the better. That is why the Children’s Scholarship Fund Philadelphia focuses on the elementary years, from kindergarten through eighth grade. The seeds for aspiring to, and succeeding in, college are sowed during the formative years in grades K-8, by a sound educational experience that both challenges and motivates. Unfortunately, children from low-income families often are not exposed to such an education at their local public school. Scholarships at the pre-college level bring help earlier, when it is needed most. Commitment The parental contribution is a vital element in the success of the program. Families who pay tuition treat their child’s education as a priority and become more involved in their child’s education. Empowerment CSFP makes awards to families, not to schools. If a participating family moves, or becomes dissatisfied with their chosen school, they may take their scholarship with them to a different school. Satisfaction In an evaluation of the Children’s Scholarship Fund by Harvard University, 68% of the 850 recipient families surveyed indicated that they were “very satisfied” with the private schools’ academic quality, safety, discipline, and the values taught in the school. Only 23% of their public school counterparts felt similarly. (Click here to view the Harvard study) Statistical Information Children’s Scholarship Fund Philadelphia is one of approximately forty partner programs that comprise the Children’s Scholarship Fund. CSFP will enter its ninth school year in the fall 2008. The program is helping approximately 3,400 low-income children attend the school of their family’s choice. The average school tuition per child is $2,400 and the average CSFP scholarship is $1,200, with a maximum award of $1,900. The average family contribution per child is $1,100/year on an average annual income of $28,400. Demand There is a tremendous demand for educational alternatives to public schools in Philadelphia. CSFP has received over 90,000 applications over the last eleven years for the 7,000 scholarships. Diversity Children’s Scholarship Fund Philadelphia is a diverse program. Participating families come from every ethnic background, and their choices of schools reveal a similar variety. Of the 205 schools participating in the program, religious-oriented schools represent the largest single group: they include Catholic, Baptist, Jewish, Islamic, Lutheran, and Pentecostal. Also represented are traditional college preparatory schools, Montessori, Afro-Centric, foreign-language, and other non-sectarian private schools.

Veterans of Foreign Wars
The VFW's voice had been instrumental in establishing the Veterans Administration, creating a GI bill for the 20th century, the development of the national cemetery system and the fight for compensation for Vietnam vets exposed to Agent Orange and for veterans diagnosed with Gulf War Syndrome. In 2008, VFW won a long-fought victory with the passing of a GI Bill for the 21st Century, giving expanded educational benefits to America's active-duty service members, and members of the Guard and Reserves, fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. The VFW also has fought for improving VA medical centers services for women veterans. Besides helping fund the creation of the Vietnam, Korean War, World War II and Women in Military Service memorials, the VFW in 2005 became the first veterans' organization to contribute to building the new Disabled Veterans for Life Memorial, which opened in November 2010. Annually, the nearly 2 million members of the VFW and its Auxiliaries contribute more than 8.6 million hours of volunteerism in the community, including participation in Make A Difference Day and National Volunteer Week. From providing over $3 million in college scholarships and savings bonds to students every year, to encouraging elevation of the Department of Veterans Affairs to the president's cabinet, the VFW is there. As a not-for-profit organization, the VFW Foundation receives no government funding. We rely solely on individual donations and corporation sponsorships. Your tax-deductible charitable contribution makes a direct impact on how much help and financial support we’re able to provide our deployed troops and retired military and their families in their time of need. With your help, we can continue to support programs that:
  • Reward America’s military heroes and their families by sponsoring admission to popular entertainment events and attractions.
  • Provide prepaid phone time and sponsored “Free Call Days” allowing deployed troops and hospitalized veterans to connect with loved ones.
  • Support troops and their families in need of financial assistance for housing, medical or basic assistance needs with a one-time grant.
  • Sponsor “welcome home” and “send off” events to boost the morale of returning or deployed military units.
  • Offer military veterans, regardless of when or where they served, with VFW counsel and assistance to successfully navigate VA entitlement and disability claims.
