Purple Heart Scholarship

Military Order of the Purple Heart Scholarship Program

Did you know that Veterans Day was originally celebrated as Armistice Day? When President Wilson proclaimed it a holiday in 1919, it was meant to remember those who gave their lives in World War I (WWI) and to recognize the end of the “war to end all wars.” It wasn’t until May 13, 1938 that November 11 was made a legal holiday that should be dedicated to the cause of world peace and set aside to honor the veterans of WWI. Nearly two decades later, after World War II and the Korean War, the 83rd Congress amended the Act of 1938 by changing the word “Armistice” to “Veterans.”  Today, we celebrate Veterans Day by recognizing all those who have served and honoring those who gave their lives for our country.

10 Fall Scholarships for High School Sophomores

It is said that money can’t buy happiness, but it sure can make paying for college a heck of a lot easier. That’s why it’s so important for high school sophomores to get their feet wet when it comes to the scholarship search process.

If students wait until senior year to start applying for scholarships, it not only reduces their opportunities for winning awards, but it can also increase their stress levels. By setting aside time each month to work on scholarships during their sophomore year, students can build their confidence while building their financial aid nest egg.
