The American Legion Legacy Scholarship 2022 application is now online. The scholarship is available to children whose parents lost their lives while honorably serving on active military duty on or after 9/11, as well as children of post-9/11 veterans with a combined VA disability rating of 50 percent or higher, are eligible to apply for The American Legion Legacy Scholarship.

Eligible applicants can apply online here. The application deadline is April 15.

Since the Legacy Scholarship’s first grant in 2004, more than 430 military children of the fallen and disabled have received over $3.7 million in aid.

The Legacy Scholarship provides financial aid for graduate or post-graduate tuition, books, room and board, meal plans and other supplies needed to achieve a higher education. It is a needs-based scholarship – the grant amount each scholarship recipient will receive will be based on his or her financial need after all federal and state aid is exhausted. Recipients will have a year to use the grant and may reapply to The American Legion Legacy Scholarship up to six times.

The number of scholarships awarded and the amount of financial aid granted to each awardee (this includes returning applicants) will be determined on donations to the scholarship fund and one’s financial needs.

The 2022 American Legion Legacy Scholarship recipients will be selected by The American Legion’s Committee on Youth Education during the organization’s annual Spring Meetings in May. All applicants, whether recipients of the Legacy Scholarship or not, will be notified immediately thereafter.

Legacy Scholarship awards are made possible from donations to The American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund. Donate here or contact Robert F. McDermott Post 309 Adjutant/Legion Riders Post 309 Director at (210) 874-2018 ext 1002.
