New Scholarship for Hawaii Veterans and their Families Now Available

New Scholarship for Hawaii Veterans and their Families Now Available

PR Newswire

Elias Halvorson, Mortgage Consultant, Establishes a $2000 Veterans of Hawaii Scholarship Program

HONOLULU, Hawaii, Aug. 15, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- To ensure that veterans and their families have the opportunity to achieve higher education, Elias Halvorson created The Veterans of Hawaii Scholarship. This $2000 scholarship will be awarded to four successful applicants, veterans, members, or a military child, each receiving 500 dollars towards funding costs for a private college or university in Hawaii. Elias states that "I am thrilled to have the opportunity to give back to fellow veterans, members, and their families. This scholarship, which will hopefully grow in future years, is a small token of thanks to those who have given so much."

Elias Halvorson's goal is to help veterans and their families find stability and success in higher education. Military families are faced with many challenges throughout their lives; long-term moves can often be difficult for veterans and their families. Readjusting to civilian life also brings its own set of challenges, and the high-cost of pursuing higher education prevents some members, veterans, and their dependents, from pursuing post-secondary education. Making college more accessible to veterans and their families is the purpose of this scholarship.

The GI Bill and other federal programs provide some financial assistance for veterans pursuing higher education, but often, there are are still additional costs not covered. . Veteran initiatives like The Veterans of Hawaii Scholarship will help close those gaps by reducing the financial burden and making it possible for more people who served our country pursue higher eduction and finish college with less debt.

When you need help with your Hawaii VA Loan, it is important to work closely alongside someone who understands the process. Mortgage Consultant Elias Halvorson has been helping veterans in Hawaii pull their Certificate of Eligibility (COE) while guiding them through financing a new home using their veteran benefits. This dedication to veterans carries over into ways to give back to the community, like by providing opportunities for scholarships among other things.

How Hawaii Veterans can Apply for this Tuition Assistance.

The Veterans of Hawaii Scholarship is open to veterans and their dependents that are currently or will be attending a college or university in Hawaii during the 2022–23 school year. The scholarship provides financial aid towards the cost of tuition and other educational expenses. To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must write an essay of at least 500 words describing how military service has impacted them or their families. Submissions must be received by October 1st, 2022, with recipients of the scholarship being announced on October 31st, 2022.
