7 October 2005

      The Bismarck post of Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) has made a scholarship available to help a United Tribes Technical College student who is a military veteran.

Robert Bird, past Commander, presented a $1,000 scholarship check September 28 on behalf of the Gilbert N. Nelson VFW Post 1326 of Bismarck.

      "There seems to be the perception that the VFW is an organization that only serves older veterans," said Robert Bird, past Commander of the Gilbert N. Nelson VFW Post 1326 of Bismarck. "We're out to change that by working with younger veterans."

      The VFW approached all three colleges in Bismarck to make scholarship money available. Bird presented a $1,000 check to representatives of the UTTC Scholarship Committee September 28.

      The scholarship will be available to returning, full-time students only. Other criteria include a minimum 2.5 GPA and a demonstrated need. Burleigh and Morton county residents are preferred but not mandated.

      Veterans who wish to apply can obtain an application at my office in the Financial Aid Department. Molly Huber, 255-3285 x 1355, mhuber@uttc.edu.
