Help A Hero SCholarships

Sport Clips and VFW Help A Hero scholarship program logo

The VFW’s "Sport Clips’ Help A Hero Scholarship" program has contributed $10 million to the VFW since 2013, which has funded more than 2,200 scholarships. Its primary focus is on funding scholarships for service members and veterans working toward finishing their education and taking the next steps in their post-military careers. By providing scholarships for use at post-secondary schools, including trade schools, our goal is to make the transition from a military career to the civilian workforce a little easier. From degrees in law, medicine, business, education, engineering and many more, these men and women share a common desire to make a difference as civilians.

Through our continued commitment to the Red Cross, Sport Clips’ Team Members and clients understand the need for blood and platelets never goes away, and is often drastically increased when disasters strike. For more information on lifesaving blood donations please consider Giving the Gift of Life.
