Higher Education Scholarships for Orphans of Veterans
This program, first established by the Legislature in 1943, provides $2,500 scholarships to children of New Hampshire service members who died on active duty or of service-connected disabilities to attend New Hampshire public colleges and universities.
The funds are to be used for room, board, books, and supplies at New Hampshire public colleges and universities. Since 1981, the Legislature has also allowed qualified children of fallen veterans to receive free tuition through the University System of New Hampshire and Community College System of New Hampshire.
For more information about the application process and records needed to qualify, contact Patricia Edes at the Division of Higher Education via email at [email protected].
