Footwear Warriors Higher Education Scholarship

The Footwear Warriors Scholarship Fund was developed exclusively for military Veterans (and their children) working in the footwear industry.

“We live in a great country made safe by Veterans who have served us well in incredibly trying and sensitive times around the world. It’s our collective responsibility to give them something in return, to prepare them for life after service. That’s why we launched this fund and encourage others to donate and help make a difference in the lives of our Veterans.”
Kevin Donahue, Chairman, Quabaug Charitable Foundation

The Footwear Warriors Scholarship was designed to promote vocational and higher education among Veterans currently employed, or returning to work in the footwear industry after their tour of duty.

  • Applicants or their parents must have a minimum of two years’ employment in the footwear industry (1,000 hours over two years)
  • Applicant must be a United States citizen or eligible non-citizen
