I so am happy to blog about this, since I love finding money for colleges!
This month ThanksUSA contacted me and asked if I could talk about their scholarship program, which is accepting applications from April 1st to May 16th. They have been providing need-based scholarships to children and spouses of U.S. military personnel for nearly 6 years now, and I read on their website that ThanksUSA has awarded 2,200 scholarships worth almost $6.5 million with plans to award 500 more scholarships at $3,000 each in 2011.
These scholarships are granted to dependent children and spouses, and are for first-time undergraduate study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school. Spouses may also use the award for non-degree licensure or certification programs, regardless of whether an undergraduate degree has already been completed.
This year for the first time, Kaplan University is proud to offer a full undergraduate scholarship through ThanksUSA for an eligible military spouse. In addition, Educational Support Scholarships, which provide for reduced tuition of up to 51 percent, are also available to eligible military spouses.
So please visit them, check them out, and see if this applies to you! For eligibility requirements and application, visit www.thanksusa.org/main/scholarships.html.
