Our Foundation provides numerous resources for our Veteran Scholarship Recipients.
Veterans who receive a VVF Scholarship are required to continue their formal education at LPC towards an Associate Degree in a STEM-related field (Science Technology Engineering Math) and maintain a 2.5 Grade Point Average.
We may provide a nominal housing subsidy for up to 1 year paid directly to the housing provider to relieve financial stress and allow our recipients to focus their attentions on furthering their education.
We facilitate the identification of potential mentors and introductions to individuals who can assist in professional planning, personal and career development throughout the scholarship term and as alumni.
Depending on the recipient’s physical health and capability, we work with each veteran to help secure appropriate training and employment opportunities.
CAREER & NETWORKING ASSISTANCE
During the scholarship term and as alumni the Valley Veterans Foundation Scholarship, recipients are presented with various networking opportunities to further their career path and can be introduced to prospective employers.
Access to professional financial planners is available to each VVF recipient at no cost. This can be by request or it may be required by VVF due to financial circumstances of the individual. The planners will help the VVF recipients establish basic budgeting skills and advice designed to help build up their financial worth.
The Valley Veterans Foundation created the Valley Veterans LinkedIn group to connect with other current and alumni Valley Veteran Scholarship Recipients.
We encourage past and present VVF Recipients to join this group to connect and network with each other, ask and share advice about college and jobs, and keep connected with the LPC Veteran community.
