The Veterans Foundation of North Carolina Inc. is proud to support and sponsor the VFW's Voice of Democracy audio/essay program for North Carolina. Each year 17 scholarships are awarded to our students, totaling over $20,000.

Students in grades 9-12 though-out the state compete on the local level by writing and recording an essay. The essay is based on a patriotic chosen by the Commander in Chief of the National VFW.

The winners from 17 districts will advance to the state competition. All entries at the state level will receive a scholarship sponsored by the Veterans Foundation of North Carolina Inc. The scholarships range in value from $1,000 to $5,000.
