Empowering Healthy Veterans Campaign

WELCOME!

The UofSC Aiken, Veteran and Military Student Success Office proudly present The Empowering Healthy Veterans (EHV) Campaign!

This inclusive event focuses on Veterans’ physical, and mental health awareness, as well as the positive impact these important aspects have on our community. The proceeds will establish an EHV, UofSC Aiken Veteran & Military Student Academic Scholarship!

The UofSC Aiken Veteran & Military Student Academic Scholarship will award several scholarships to students that are Military Veterans, Service Members, Military Spouses, or Military Family Members each academic year. Students will receive this new scholarship based on merit, a documented financial need, or both factors. Each scholarship will take into consideration the student’s honorable military record of service, academic success, and potential to succeed in civilian life.

Invest in your community’s civic health by supporting the health of Military Veterans and their families that are transitioning back into civilian life!

OUR VISION

Our campaign brings together action and awareness to empower both military veterans and the community to experience the connection between Veterans’ health and the community’s civic health. We are encouraging Veteran’s to live their best life and become champions of Veteran success.

With your help we can continue to thrive!
