VVA South Bay Chapter 53 Now Accepting Scholarship Applications

Entries Must be Received by April 18, 2021

Vietnam Veterans of America South Bay Chapter 53 is proud to announce the Annual Scholarship Program for graduating high school students.

Since 1995 the VVA South Bay Chapter 53 has been awarding scholarships to graduating seniors from local South Bay area high schools. In addition to encouraging and supporting continued education, they are trying to heighten awareness of the Vietnam War, the men and women who served during that period, and the huge impact it has made on the United States, both then and now.

This year, Chapter 53 will again award scholarships of $1,000 to selected college or technical school bound South Bay area high school seniors.

Applicants must submit an essay on a Vietnam Era Veteran, defined as any Veteran who served in the U.S. Armed Forces on active duty, for other than training purposes, either 1) in the Republic of Vietnam between February 28, 1961 and May 7, 1975 or 2) in any duty location between August 5, 1964 and May 7, 1975.
