Military Scholarships

Helping Veterans & Their Families Achieve Their Educational Goals

Twice a year, as applications allow, we award two different veterans, servicemembers, or dependents of an active-duty servicemember a $1250 scholarship to help them pursue their education. While winners can use the money at any time of the year, regardless of whether classes are in session, the money can only be used towards tuition or textbook costs.

Why we created the scholarship:

At Low VA Rates, we believe owning a home is part of the American dream, and education is another important part. That's 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.

Spring 2021 Scholarship Recipient

Corinna Jones

Corinna is currently studying behavioral neuroscience at Columbia University with plans to attend graduate school to further her knowledge. Eventually, she would like to become a neuroscience researcher and help develop more effective treatments for disorders like PTSD, ALS, and Alzheimer's disease.

Both Corinna's mother and step-father currently serve in the Army as instructor pilots for Apache helicopters. In her own words, Corinna has said that, "[B]eing part of a military community was crucial in instilling my most valued life skills." Watching the examples of her parents and their military peers helped her develop the discipline and work ethic she uses to succeed.

In addition to her classwork at an Ivy League institution, Corinna also volunteers with various on-campus service organizations, and has even used her time to help advise low-income high school students about applying to colleges with high graduation rates.
