My 18 yr old daughter received a $1000.00 scholarship from a veterans organization that we her parents were members of and sponsored her for the award. She started school and had problems and tried to commit suicide and was diagnosed as bi polar and we received a letter today telling us we need to pay the money back if she does not complete the next semester of full time student status. She does plan to go to school but will not be able to carry a full time status due to her work schedule. I have read the application and there are no rules or regulations involved in writing about pay back if she does not complete her schooling. Can they take legal action against us as her sponsors especially since we are not legally responsible for her after she turned 18. If you would like to see the app it is online at Randy P. Hill AMVETS Post 1957 Paul Hill Memorial Scholarship link.

Thank you,
