Every year, hundreds of thousands of students participate in the Voice of Democracy Scholarship Competition. The VFW's Military Scholarship program provides 25 $3,000 scholarships annually to VFW members who are currently serving in uniform or have been discharged within the 36 months before the December 31 deadline. The scholarships will be awarded to service members from each branch of service (Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard) during the first quarter of the year following the deadline. By providing leaders, funding, sponsorships and other resources, the VFW and its Auxiliaries encourage millions of America's young adults to higher ideals and greater personal achievement.

The Fund for Veterans' Education provides scholarships to help meet the financial need of veterans from all branches of the United States Armed Forces who have served in Afghanistan or Iraq since September 11, 2001 and who are now enrolled in college or vocational-technical school. Scholarship America is a national nonprofit education support and student aid service organization that seeks to involve and assist the public and private sectors in expanding educational opportunities and encouraging educational achievement. Scholarship recipients are selected primarily on the basis of financial need. In addition, length of military service (number of months and number of tours served) will be considered.
