Virginia Peninsula Community College (VPCC) is proud to announce its membership in SALUTE, the premier honor society for student veterans! SALUTE stands for Service, Academics, Leadership, Unity, Tribute, and Excellence. This elite association is made possible by a generous grant from the American Council on Education/Wal-Mart Foundation. The first induction ceremony was held in April 2018, and the second will be held once we can be back on campus and in gatherings of more than 10.
We are committed to recognizing and encouraging the academic success of military students at Virginia Peninsula Community College. We are looking for eligible military students to be members of SALUTE at our college. To be eligible, a student must:
- Have completed a minimum of 12 credits
- Have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher
- Submit a DD-214 (student veteran) or Discharge from Active Duty or a copy of military orders
- If submitting DD-214, must reflect the character of the service
- Submit a $35.00 membership fee with the application form
The $35.00 membership fee goes toward the National SALUTE Scholarship Fund. By being a member of SALUTE, students are eligible to apply and compete for national SALUTE scholarships. These national scholarships are designed to support student veterans who need supplementation of their GI® Bill funding or who do not have GI® Bill funding.
If you are interested in joining, please fill out the membership application below.
Once it is completed, return it to Military & Veteran Services at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the applications are received and reviewed, you will receive an invitation to attend the induction ceremony and reception. You will pay your individual membership directly to SALUTE Veterans National Honor Society here: https://salute-colostate.nbsstore.net/salute-individual-membership
