Detroit Chapter 9 of the Vietnam Veterans of America, Inc.

February 02, 2024

Detroit Chapter #9 of Vietnam Veterans of America, Inc. (VVA9) has been a beacon for Vietnam veterans in the Detroit Metropolitan area. While focused on Vietnam veterans and their needs, the Chapter also supports and advocates on issues important to all veterans and continually looks for ways to contribute to the local community. Organizers for Chapter 9 trace the group’s history to 1971 and Wayne State University, where many veterans were attending school under the GI Bill. They have four scholarships available, which are listed below.

1. Outstanding Junior ROTC (Two Scholarships)

High School Junior ROTC programs are important, in part, for the discipline and leadership skills that are taught to all cadets. Two scholarships for $2,500 each will be awarded to cadets who have demonstrated discipline and leadership.

2. Unsung Graduate (Two Scholarships)

Many of VVA9’s members would not have qualified for a college scholarship based upon their academic performance in high school. Yet, following their discharge from active duty, these same members became successful in their careers. Recognizing Unsung Graduates, who have confronted their own challenges, assistance for post-secondary education is provided. Two scholarships for $2,500 each will be awarded.
