Disney Continues Support of Veterans with New Scholarship Program

As part of the company's ongoing Heroes Work Here initiative, Disney recently announced a new partnership with Student Veterans of America (SVA) to provide three scholarships to student veterans.

The scholarships, each worth $10,000, will be awarded to student veterans who are pursuing a degree in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM). In addition to the scholarship, the recipients will also be guaranteed an interview for an internship with The Walt Disney Company.

Last year Disney announced that they would hire an additional 1,000 veterans through 2015 as part of the Heroes Work Here initiative after the company had surpassed its original goal, hiring 1,300 veterans in one year alone.

The Student Veterans of America is a leading organization that assists military veterans succeed in higher education and beyond.

The deadline for submitting scholarship applications is April 1. More information on the scholarship program can be found here.
