Novice Scholarship Opportunity
The National Veterans Wheelchair Games is about promoting the health and independence of our nation’s Veterans with spinal cord injuries, amputations, multiple sclerosis, and other neurologic conditions through wheelchair sports and recreation. The Veterans Canteen Service (VCS) is an integral part of the VA community and committed to supporting the well-being of our Veterans.
As a long-time sponsor of the Wheelchair Games, VCS has expanded their support to make sure that no eligible Novice Veteran misses out on the opportunity to participate because of cost.
To be eligible, you must be:
- Registered for the 40th Wheelchair Games AND
- Be part of a VA Medical Center Team
Novice Veterans will receive financial support for travel and housing during the 40th
Wheelchair Games—so apply early! Applications due by April 15, 2020.
These funds are intended for Novice athletes without other funding support!
