The Tillman Scholars program provides active-duty service members, veterans, and military spouses with funds to help cover educational expenses, including tuition, fees, books, and living expenses. Since the creation of the program, there have been over 450 Tillman Scholars at more than 100 institutions nationwide. The program also offers other benefits: access to the Tillman Community and leadership opportunities within the network, invitations to annual conferences such as the Pat Tillman Leadership Summit, research opportunities in the veteran and military community, and volunteering opportunities.
Applicants must be veterans or active-duty military service members, current or surviving spouses, or service members or spouses pursing a degree as a full-time student. The application requires military service history, academic history, enrollment plans, and expected academic/living expenses and income for the upcoming academic year. Each award amount is determined on a case-by-case basis, but Tillman Scholars can anticipate an average scholarship of $10,000 per academic year. Scholarship funding can only be used toward a single post-secondary degree, and is only available to those attending American institutions.
