SPARTANBURG, S.C. – Local veterans now have another avenue to further their training and careers.

Veteran Scholarships Forever has set up a fund at Spartanburg Community College that will help veterans and their spouses take vocational and skilled trades training programs that can lead to employment, said Ron Demonet, the scholarship program’s managing director.

“We are very excited to be setting up this fund in Spartanburg,” he said. “We believe this will be a great benefit for those local who have served our nation.”

People interested in applying for the scholarship should contact the Spartanburg Community College’s Corporate and Community Education Division. People interested in donating to the scholarship fund can contact http://www.scholarshipsforever.org.

Demonet started Veteran Scholarships Forever after learning about the high unemployment rates for veteran post the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Although there are government programs like the G.I. Bill, which help veterans get an education, these programs do not cover all types of training.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, Veteran Scholarships Forever receives contributions from individuals and organizations.  Once donations are received, Veterans Scholarships Forever establishes endowments at evaluated colleges where veterans can apply for these scholarships.

The college then manages the endowment and provides scholarships to veterans with the most need to obtain the skills needed to be qualified for a job placement that will allow veterans to provide for themselves and their families, he said.

Veterans are still eligible for other forms of financials aid, Demonet said.  Veteran Scholarships Forever does not grant scholarships directly, but interested veterans and current spouses can contact the colleges’ financial aid or Veterans Affairs department to inquire about the program.
