In 2008, a group of Chevrolet Corvette owners and enthusiasts from Alabama formed Vettes-4-Vets, an organization dedicated to helping veterans in their time of need. The group assists selected nonprofit organizations that support veterans, current military personnel, and military family members, and now it has established an endowed award at UAB.

The Vettes-4-Vets Endowed Award will benefit current or former members of the United States military who enroll in degree-granting programs at UAB. This partnership between UAB and Vettes-4-Vets will provide educational and financial support to our military men and women and will be critical to their ability to achieve a higher education following their military careers.

Since its inception, Vettes-4-Vets has held a major fund-raiser each Memorial Day at the Talladega Superspeedway, where it has raised significant funds for veteran-related causes, including the Wounded Warriors Foundation, Lakeshore Lima Foxtrot Project, Three Hots and a Cot, SOS of Huntsville, and the Alabama War Dog Memorial Foundation.
