Retroactive Scholarship -
Leave No Veteran Behind addresses this issue by taking private donations and applying them directly to Veterans’ student loan accounts paying off the debt in full. Veterans must have completed some form of higher education, suffer from economic hardship, and have student loans because they were not fully covered by existing educational programs.
