The N.C. Division of Veterans Affairs (NCDVA) reminds eligible students to apply for college scholarships available to children of N.C. war veterans.
“In appreciation for the service and sacrifices of North Carolina’s war veterans, these scholarships are provided to help to defray the ever-increasing costs of higher education,” said NCDVA director Tim Wipperman.
To qualify, the applicant must be a resident of N.C. at the time of application. The application deadline is March 1.
Interested students should contact their local Veterans Service Office by visiting www.doa.nc.gov/vets/locations/.
