Questions & Answers
I have heard about the Pat Tillman Foundation’s Tillman Military Scholarship. Who is eligible to apply?
The Tillman Military Scholars program supports active-duty servicemembers, veterans and their families by removing financial barriers to completing a degree or certification program of their choice. The scholarships cover not only direct study-related expenses such as tuition and fees, but also other needs, including housing and child care. The application period opens each spring, and a new class of Tillman Military Scholars is announced in June. More information on the application process for the 2012-2013 academic year will be available at the Pat Tillman Foundation website, www.pattillmanfoundation.org, in January.
