WHO IS ELIGIBLE
The Louis H. Schilt Memorial Scholarship is open to physically or mentally wounded U.S. veterans or spouses of injured veterans. The scholarship is intended to benefit servicemembers who have undergone a life-changing experience as a result of a physical or mental injury. A life-changing experience is one that prevents you from returning to the life you knew, and challenges you to redefine yourself.
Candidates will apply for the scholarship by writing a personal statement about their service experience and injury and a creative essay. Both written components will be judged by the scholarship awards committee. Candidates will need to submit copies of injury documentation (physical or mental) and must be over 18 years old and able to provide evidence of attaining a high school diploma, GED, or college degree.
Applicants will be selected based on evidence presented in their personal statement and their creative essay. Additional consideration will be given to ability to benefit based on prior academic achievement. Awards are made without regard to financial status, race, creed, religious preference, or sex.
