Ahmanson Veterans Scholarship

The Ahmanson Veterans Scholarship Initiative (AVSI) was established by the Trustees of The Ahmanson Foundation in January 2013. The purpose of the initiative is to enable institutions, including Biola University, with a means to recruit, retain, and educate veterans eligible for the Post 9/11 GI Bill. This scholarship is available to select undergrad and graduate students who are veterans, are eligible for education benefits under the Post 9/11 GI Bill, and who demonstrate financial need according to federal methodology (FAFSA) as funding is available.
