Through an investment in education, the Patriot Education Fund’s vision is to honor and empower our service members and military families transition from their service to our country into successful careers in the public and private sector.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
The mission of the Patriot Education Fund is to provide financial and educational assistance to enlisted military veterans (E1 to E5) and their dependents. We bridge the unintended funding gaps created by the post 9/11 GI Bill, by providing financial support to individuals pursuing: bachelor and associate degrees, accredited technical training diplomas, and certified apprenticeship programs. We focus our investments in those individuals and families who display financial need, while demonstrating the greatest promise that our investments in their lives will continue to benefit our country and community through their leadership.
