The American College, an educational institution devoted to financial services classes, has created a $500,000 scholarship fund to offer financial aid to veterans.

The fund is open to veterans who have served in the U.S. armed forces, including the Army, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard and National Guard. The scholarships can pay for a veteran's entire tuition, depending on financial need. Half scholarships, subject to a demonstration of financial need, are also available. Members of the armed forces must have been honorably discharged from their branch of service to quality. Scholarships are available to all veterans, regardless of discharge date.

The American College, based in Bryn Mawr, Pa., offers its classes primarily online and on DVD, but also in various U.S. cities. The college offers certifications such as the Chartered Financial Consultant and Certified Financial Planner.
