Pat Tillman Foundation Scholarship
Student veterans interested in academic scholarships to help finance their pursuit of a degree should consider applying for the Pat Tillman Foundation scholarship.
The mission of the Pat Tillman Foundation is to invest in military veterans and their spouses through educational scholarships; building a diverse community of leaders committed to service to others.
Scholars are selected based on meeting a high level of excellence as demonstrated through essays and application questions which tie together these factors: motivation for serving in the military, impact of service on life/career, explanation of how degree will apply to/accelerate career and applicant's desire to continue service and make a positive impact. Further selection criteria can be found on the Become a TMS page.
In 2013, the Pat Tillman Foundation will provide over $1 million in funding to the 60 members of the 5th class of Tillman Military Scholars.
The Tillman Military Scholars application opens on Monday, January 14. The application will remain open until 11:59:59 PM PST on Friday, February 15.
Updated criteria for the program and essay questions can be found on the PTF website here: http://pattillmanfoundation.org/apply-to-be-a-scholar/. This is also where the online application will be posted.
