Tillman scholarships

In 2008, the Pat Tillman Foundation established the Tillman Scholars program to support educational opportunities for service members and military families by bridging the financial gaps left by the Post-9/11 GI Bill®. Military families face numerous challenges during the transition from military to civilian life and have unique needs that often prevent the successful completion of a degree.

Tillman Scholars receive financial support to not only cover traditional study-related expenses such as tuition and books, but also other needs, including (but not limited to) housing, transportation and childcare. In providing this support, the Pat Tillman Foundation aims to remove obstacles that would otherwise prohibit academic and career success.

The Tillman Scholars program supports our nation’s active-duty service members, veterans and military spouses by investing in their higher education at every level, from freshman undergraduates to doctoral candidates. Since the program’s inception, the Foundation has named over 520 Tillman Scholars nationwide.

Applications to become a 2018 Tillman Scholar will close on March 1, 2018 at 11:59pm PT.
