The American Legion's Legacy Scholarship was created for children of servicemembers who have died on active duty since Sept. 11, 2001. Last year, the eligibility criteria were expanded to include children of post 9/11 veterans who have a combined VA disability rating of 50 percent or greater. The needs-based scholarship provides up to $20,000. To apply for the scholarship or get more information, visit the American Legion Legacy Scholarship webpage. The deadline for all applicants to complete the application process is April 20, 2017.
