Wounded Veteran Scholarship



With the number of wounded service members returning home to their communities increasing every day, San Francisco International University College of Law is excited to have an opportunity to support other veterans and service members. Our Wounded Veteran Scholarship Program provides tuition free education to service members, who suffered combat related disability. “Combat-related disability” is defined by 10 U.S.Code § 1413a (e) as disability that is compensable under the laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs and that -

(1) is attributable to an injury for which the member was awarded the Purple Heart; or
(2) was incurred (as determined under criteria prescribed by the Secretary of Defense)—
(A) as a direct result of armed conflict;
(B) while engaged in hazardous service;
(C) in the performance of duty under conditions simulating war; or
(D) through an instrumentality of war.

For the other current members of the US Army or for former members, who were honorably discharged from the service, our school offers to those education with the tuition fees reduced by one half.

Wounded Veteran Scholarship seeks to enhance the lives of wounded service members through tuition free scholarship in all of our degree programs aimed at improving mental health and wellness; exposing wounded service members to new carrier opportunities and enhancing their economic empowerment and independence.

We envision a generation of wounded veterans and other service members who are economically empowered and have opportunities to pursue a meaningful career or own their own business. San Francisco International University College of Law offers graduate degree programs in law to encourage economic empowerment for warriors and to provide long-term financial stability for themselves and their families.

Wounded Veteran Scholarship Program provides grants awarded in amounts up to $100,000 annually.
