LUCIAN BUTLER SCHOLARSHIP FUND
The newest scholarship program open to the Virginia American Legion family is the Lucian Butler Scholarship Fund. Last year we had over $23,000 to award, but only had two applicants, each of whom received $2,000. To be eligible, candidates must be high school boys and girls who are sons/step-sons, daughters/step-daughters, grandsons, and granddaughters of members of the Virginia American Legion family who exemplify the spirit and true American values and have been admitted to an accredited four year college or university. Initial scholarships are available to those entering the freshman class. Awards in follow on years will be considered as funds are available. Completing a scholarship application can be a difficult task, but complete instructions are available at the Virginia American Legion website. Applications and instruction are available online at www.valegion.org and can be found under the Programs Menu, then Scholarships, then Lucien Butler American Legion Scholarship.
