Our mission is to Honor Veterans and Educate their Legacy. We achieve the former through the patriotic ceremony at the beginning of the Patriot Benefit, our primary fundraising activity on Patriots' Day, September 11th.
We achieve the latter by providing scholarship money to partner institutions who match our contributions and distribute the money to the dependents of deceased or 100% disabled veterans. These individuals qualify under the Dependents' Educational Assistance (DEA) Program under Chapter 35 of the GI Bill.
We distributed money to our partner institutions in December of 2021, with the first scholarships to be distributed in the Fall of 2022. Our first round of scholarships provided $350,000 of scholarships to to 133 DEA-qualified students.
First, I just want to sincerely thank you for the opportunity to receive the The Heart of America Patriot Foundation Scholarship. This scholarship means a lot to me and I am very grateful for it. This scholarship will take a huge financial burden off of me, allowing me to not work as often. This will then provide me with more time for my studies and being active on campus. Thank you again for this opportunity. Best wishes to you!
I am paying for school out of pocket and am working hard to complete my degree by spring of 2023. It has gotten stressful to work full-time and go to school full-time. I am working hard every day to achieve my goals, and this scholarship is an important piece of accomplishing that.
