Pat Tillman Scholarships

The Pat Tillman Foundation, created to "carry forward Pat's legacy by inspiring people to make positive changes in themselves and in the world around them," has announced their two generous "leadership through action" scholarship programs, one for military members and one for dependents of military members.  These scholarships are available to most current and former military groups, including all branches of the services, the National Guard and Reserve, and include veterans.  I think that these scholarships are a little unique in that they offer support for undergraduate, graduate, post-graduate, 2-year, 4-year, public, private, vocational, and trade degrees or certifications – that's pretty much any sort of education you could desire!

The Servicemember Scholarship Application and instructions are located here.

The Dependents of Servicemember Scholarship Application and instructions are located here.

The deadline for applications is May 14th, 2009.
