    Sport Clips & VFW Celebrate TEN YEARS of Scholarships

    For ten years, Sport Clips has been the primary supporter of the VFW’s "Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship" program, which provides scholarships for service members and veterans for use at post-secondary schools and trade schools. To date, along with the VFW, we have awarded more than 2,720 scholarships totaling $12.3 million.

    From October 8 through November 11, Sport Clips stores around the country will collect donations in-store to help fund these life-changing scholarships. More than 80% of the funds raised each year come directly from our generous clients, with the balance coming from our generous suppliers and product partners. And on Veterans Day, November 11th, participating Sport Clips locations provided free haircuts to veterans and active-duty service members as well as donated $2 for every haircut service provided on that day. 

    Scholarship recipients come from every part of the United States, represent five branches of service and are earning a variety of degrees including engineering, computer science, business, accounting, health care and many more. 

    Applications are accepted by the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW). Application dates for the fall semester are January 1 through April 30 and dates for the spring semester are August 1 through November 15. To learn more about the VFW's "Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship" program, including details on eligibility, click here.
