Scholarships available to U.S. Military spouses and dependent children
BIRMINGHAM, AL - Andrew Jackson University, an accredited degree granting, wholly online institution that promotes special programs for the spouses of those serving in the U.S. military, is calling attention to an independent scholarship program sponsored by a third party. This program has awarded over 1,350 scholarships valued at almost $4 million since its inception. The 2008 scholarship program opened on April 1 and early applications are suggested.
All spouses and dependent children under 24 of active duty U.S. military service personnel and eligible to apply for scholarships. Children and spouses of those killed or wounded in action are also eligible for a scholarship award of $3,000. The scholarships may be used for full-time enrollment in an accredited two-year or four-year college, university, vocational or technical school.
“Since an application for a scholarship must be received by the sponsor no later than May 15, 2008, and only the first 3,000 will be accepted,” said Don Kassner, president of Andrew Jackson University, “we urge eligible individuals to act immediately to improve their chances of being awarded a scholarship.” Kassner also stated that those who are eligible can apply directly to the third party sponsor. Application information is available from AJU by calling 800-429-9300, ext. 107.
Should an individual or dependent apply for this scholarship and not be selected they will likely qualify for a partial scholarship from Andrew Jackson University, which covers part-time students, according to Kassner. The university has offered partial scholarships to military spouses and law enforcement spouses for over a year now and eligibility is automatic, so there is another option if the $3,000 award is not granted.
