 Veterans' Student Loan Relief Fund

The Veterans' Student Loan Relief Fund was established to provide assistance to veterans and their eligible dependents who have incurred educational debt and feel they are in financial difficulties as a result of being defrauded or misled by the proprietary (for-profit) school they attended.

Retroactive scholarship

Leave No Veteran Behind addresses this issue by taking private donations and applying them directly to Veterans’ student loan accounts paying off the debt in full. Veterans must have completed some form of higher education, suffer from economic hardship, and have student loans because they were not fully covered by existing educational programs. (click here for more information)
