Auburn Veterans Endowed Scholarship

General Scholarship covering – Tuition / Books / Fees / Housing / Subsistence, etc.

In 2008, the City of Auburn and the Auburn Veterans Committee established the Auburn Veterans Scholarship Foundation. The Foundation was created in an effort to show the Auburn community’s appreciation for the sacrifices made by our service men and women and their families. Each year, the Foundation will provide two, $2,000 scholarships to assist a local veteran in attending a local, post-secondary educational institution.
