Heart of America Patriot Foundation Scholarship

Mackay Hall, Park University

Park U military studentsThe Heart of America Patriot Foundation was founded in 2012 to honor, support, and empower veterans who served our nation. Since the beginning, the organization has supported Gold Star families, Honor Flights to D.C. memorials, and educational grants for veterans and their families. The Heart of America Patriot Foundation has provided much needed financial support to Park University military students, veteran students or student family members over the past three years.

With more than 50% of Park students having a military affiliation, we are launching a new initiative to help provide scholarships to dependents and spouses of 100% disabled or deceased veterans who are not eligible for VA benefits that provide them with tuition and living expenses.

While the GI Bill® funds college tuition and living expenses for qualified veterans and dependents of veterans who die in the line of duty, dependents of 100% disabled veterans or those who die after their service only receive a stipend insufficient to cover college tuition and living expenses.

Your contribution towards this initiative will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $25,000, by the Heart of America Patriot Foundation.

If you are interested in becoming a funding partner with a gift of $5,000 or more, please contact Advancement@Park.edu.
