SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM (Cancelled This year)

The men and women who serve our Nation deserve our support
— Today, Tomorrow, Always —


VANC uses its Scholarship Program to communicate to our North County high school students the value and importance of veterans to our Nation. Each year we try to inspire high school seniors to apply for these scholarships. This involves the principals, counselors and parents of the students as well as the students themselves. This involvement helps to spread the word about what VANC is and what it does to help our military members and veterans adjust and contribute to civilian life on the basis of the great contributions they have made when in the service to our Country.
