Student veteran scholarship opportunities

For adult and post-traditional learners.

Howard J. Bogenschild Legacy Grant

Mr. David Bogenschild had brothers who served in the military, and unfortunately on November 5, 1950 his brother Private Howard J. Bogenschild, who served with the “Love” Company 21st Infantry Regiment, 24th Infantry Division was killed in Action while fighting the enemy in North Korea.

In memory of Private Bogenschild’s service, the Howard J. Bogenschild Legacy Grant will be awarded to a Veteran who shows a financial need with tuition and/or with academic materials. Each grant will be in the amount of $1,000 and will be disbursed within the entire school year.

Klein Endowment

The Gordon and Dorothy Klein Endowment was established in 2019 with a generous gift from their estate. This endowment provides resources specifically for our CUAA veterans program. Gordon and Dorothy were beloved parents and heroes to their daughter, Nancy Klein and her husband, Harry Lefferts. Gordon was a loyal patriot and veteran of WWII Army Air Corp.

Nancy and Harry continue to provide generous contributions to grow the endowment, which in turn provide much-needed funds for our CUAA military families. Their objective is to help our CUAA veterans / dependents grow in their Christian faith, and strive for excellence in loyalty, dedication, hard work, and service.
