Sport Clips is Proud to Support Our Veterans

Since 2013, Sport Clips has been the primary supporter of the VFW’s Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship program, which provides scholarships for service members and veterans for use at post-secondary schools and trade schools. To date, we have awarded 1,750 scholarships totaling $8 million.

Our scholarship recipients come from every part of the United States, represent every branch of service and are earning a variety of degrees including engineering, computer science, business, accounting, health care and many more. During its annual promotion in 2019, Sport Clips locations around the country collected $1.35 million to continue to support the educational goals of our service members and veterans.
