This scholarship is for dependents of disabled veterans (children or stepchildren under age 26) or spouses or non-remarried widow(er)s who are enrolled in state-supported Alabama colleges. Veterans must have honorably served at least 90 days of continuous active federal military service, be rated 20% or more disabled due to service-connected disabilities or have held the qualifying rating at the time of death, or be former prisoners of war, declared missing in action, or have died as the result of a service-connected disability or in the line of duty while on active duty. Veterans must have been permanent civilian residents of the state of Alabama for at least one year immediately prior to initial entry into active military service or any subsequent period of military service in which a break in service occurred and civilian residency was established. Dependents of permanently disabled service-connected veterans rated at 100% may also qualify for this scholarship after the veteran has established at least five years of permanent residency in Alabama. See website for more details.
