The American Legion wants to ensure higher education is a possibility for children whose parents lost their lives while serving our country. Beginning with the 2017 award year, The American Legion expanded the scholarship to include children of VA-rated, post-9/11 veterans with a combined disability rating of 50 percent or higher. The American Legion and the Legion Riders offer support through the Legacy Scholarship Fund.
Any team manager or head coach of an American Legion (post-affiliated) team may nominate a graduating senior who plays on a Wisconsin American Legion team. Deadline: July 15 of each year.
