With Taps for Tuition, students honor veterans & earn money for college!
Honoring veterans at funerals by playing Taps can earn students $25 vouchers toward higher education costs through the Texas Veterans Commission’s Taps Tuition Voucher Program. Students ranging from grades 6 through 12 and at postsecondary educational institutions are eligible. To participate in the program, students coordinate with funeral directors to perform and certify the live sounding of Taps on a bugle, trumpet, or cornet at veteran funerals. There is no limit to the number of vouchers students may earn. For full program information, process and certification form, visit Taps for Tuition Program.
