our programs

The Jewish War Veterans Foundation annually awards over $9,000 between two different grant programs to help veterans and student descendants of veterans finance their college education.

The National Achievement Program is for veterans or active duty personnel go back to school.  Four grants are awarded annually to applicants.  The only requirement is proof of service and an honorable discharge.

The National Youth Achievement Program is for high school seniors who are direct descendants of members of the Jewish War Veterans of U.S.A.  Applicants must be accepted by an accredited college, university or hospital school of nursing entering into the freshman year in the Fall Semester.
