Spouses, dependent children, and grandchildren of blinded veterans are eligible for the annual Kathern F. Gruber Scholarships and Thomas H. Miller Scholarship to assist them with their higher education tuition. The scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit through an application process that is evaluated by a committee. Gruber and Miller scholarships are for one year only but recipients can re-apply and receive the award up to four times. The blinded veteran family member is not required to be a BVA member for the spouse or child to receive a scholarship. Qualifications for both programs are the same except for an added emphasis on music and fine arts for the Miller award.
The complete application package, including instructions and a press release, can be downloaded below.
Kathern F. Gruber and Thomas H. Miller scholarship application for the academic year 2017-18 is now available. All submissions are due by April 21, 2017. The Scholarship Committee usually meets to make decisions in early June.
