Explanation of Scholarships

Health Professionals Scholarship

Thank you American Legion Auxiliary members for your dedication to our children and youth.  By working the education program, you are supporting our students with their education.  And when you donate to the scholarship funds you are supporting the education of many students heading to college.  I have listed some of the education ideas from National below, but I know that each unit has their own great ideas. And remember to report your activities at Mid-year, December 15, and at the year-end, April 15.
