Our firm and its founder, Ryan J. Tegnelia, believe that one way we can show our thanks to disabled veterans is by helping them fulfill their educational goals. We are doing this by providing a scholarship which we hope will encourage disabled veterans to continue their education, whether at a trade or vocational school, or at the university, junior college or college level. It is a $1,000 tuition scholarship, which will be paid directly to the school that the winning applicant chooses to attend. There is no requirement that applicants be enrolled at school when they submit their application. However, the funds must be used within a year after the successful applicant is notified that he or she has won the scholarship. An applicant must be a disabled veteran of the Armed Forces of the United States (any branch). Your disability rating must be at least 30%. Our application process is simple and straightforward. To be considered for the scholarship, you should: Complete the online application. Upload a short statement setting forth your educational goals. (Optional) Upload an essay consisting of 1,000 words or less discussing how your military service has affected your life.
