As part of York Technical College's ongoing commitment to military veterans and their families, the College has partnered with Veteran Scholarships Forever, a non-profit foundation based in Greenville, S.C., to launch a new scholarship program.

The Veteran Scholarships Forever scholarships will provide funding for veterans and their spouses to take vocational and skilled trades training programs that can lead to employment, said Ron Demonet, the scholarship program’s managing director. The scholarships at York Tech will be offered through the Corporate & Continuing Education division. 

Demonet started Veteran Scholarships Forever after learning about the high unemployment rates for post-9/11 veterans. Veteran Scholarships Forever does not grant scholarships directly; York Tech will administer the scholarships through an endowed fund established through the York Technical College Foundation.

York Tech is the fourth school in South Carolina to offer aid from Veteran Scholarships Forever, joining. Greenville Technical College, Tri County Technical College and Spartanburg Community College. The program relies on donations from individuals and businesses to fund the scholarships. Visit www.scholarshipsforever.org for information on how to contribute.
