VCU Veterans Scholarship

VCU Veterans Scholarship


– Well, when I came out of the military, there was no GI Bill, so I had to work full-time without any financial aid. Many veterans today have families, and it’s not possible to work full time, take care of your
family, and go to school. Hopefully, financial aid will make life (chuckles) a little
bit easier for ’em. – This scholarship enabled
me to have a little bit of cushion in between
graduating and finding a job, kind of took the pressure off
of finding a job right away. – I don’t think there’s
any way we could ever pay our veterans for what they’ve done for us, but what we can do is do our best to give them an opportunity to get ahead. – Thank you so much for
having this scholarship. I was honored to receive it, and I know that it helped me, and I know that it’s going to continue to help future veterans. I just want to tell you
how appreciative I am, and I also know that the VCU
veteran community is as well. – Thank you for your service. Thank you very much, young man.
– Thank you, thank you. Thank you for your service. (uplifting music)
