Tuition Grant for Killed/Disabled Vets Children May Vanish
The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports that the board of fast-dwindling Michigan Veterans Trust Fund voted to renege on a program started in 1935 that provides an annual $2,800 college tuition grant to children of Michigan veterans killed in action or permanently disabled. The board is hoping to force legislators and the governor to fund the program, which costs about $1.5 million a year.
