Many scholarship awards come from the branch of the military in which the veteran served. As such, you may find unique scholarship opportunities from the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force or Coast Guard. Scholarships for children of veterans come with criteria for eligibility. One aspect relates to your parent. Another, to you and your education. Some scholarships support minor dependents pursuing a specific undergrad major. While others (e.g. AMVETs) may be available to a more general pool of applicants who meet the criteria. With respect to your parent, you may need to be the son or daughter of one of these groups. • Regular active duty • Active duty Reserve • National Guard active duty • U.S. Army members in good standing • Former U.S. Army members who received an honorable or medical discharge • Your parent was killed while serving in the U.S. Army
