Winter 2019 Scholarship

Alexander Box

Fall 2019 Scholarship Recipient

Alex is an honorably discharged officer who served in the Army. He is currently pursuing two post-graduate degrees, including his Juris Doctorate and an MBA at Loyola University.

Alex says his time in the military is what shaped him. Not only did it help him mature, but it also gave him the opportunity to become the first member of his family to earn a college degree. Growing up, Alex believed he wasn't good enough to pursue education, but joining the military allowed him to realize he can achieve anything he sets his mind to, a mentality that has affected and changed his whole family.

With his degrees, Alex plans to pursue a career in compliance working for the VA, which would allow him to give back to an organization he feels has changed his life forever. It would also provide him the opportunity to continue serving his brothers and sisters in the Armed Forces.

Why We Created the Scholarship

At Low VA Rates, we believe that owning a home is just part of the American dream. Education is another important part, which is why we don't just stop at helping our heroes with housing. You deserve our support when it comes to preparing for your future, both inside and outside of the military.
