American Legion Auxiliary Scholarships 

The ALA supports various scholarship programs that benefit veterans, the descendants of veterans, and The American Legion Family.

The American Legion Auxiliary believes that the more knowledge our young people gain, the better citizens they will become. These days, paying for a college education is becoming a larger financial burden for students and their families. According to College Board, a student who took out loans in 2017 left a four-year public university with over $26,000 in debt, jumping to over $32,000 for a private university. With the cost of attending college rapidly increasing, this number is expected to rise.

That is why the American Legion Auxiliary is so committed to helping students pursue their education through scholarships.

The Auxiliary supports various scholarship programs that benefit veterans, the descendants of veterans, and The American Legion Family.
