The Paralyzed Veterans of America Central Florida Chapter (PVACF) primary goal has been to assist its members in improving the quality of their lives. The implementation of the Educational Scholarship Program would directly affect our organizations contribution to our members as well as providing our members a program to help them achieve higher education.
PVACF will award up to 10 scholarships per school year to eligible members. Total amount of scholarship funding will be decided annually by the board during the budget process. A maximum scholarship of $1,000 per award for full-time students (14+ credit hours per semester and a maximum scholarship of $500 per award for part-time student (6+ credit hours) will be awarded. Scholarship funds are released solely in the name of the university. Under no circumstances will payment be made to the students. This award will be paid directly to the institution.
