SERVING THOSE WHO SERVE WITH OUR MILITARY SCHOLARSHIP
WHY WAS THE MILITARY SCHOLARSHIP CREATED?
Education is valuable, but it can also be costly. Paying for college on top of everyday expenses can be difficult, and every little bit can help! To show thanks for the sacrifices made by the United States military and their families, Education Connection is offering a scholarship worth $1,000. We hope to help offset the costs of earning a degree and pursuing those next steps in your civilian career path.
The winner can use the $1,000 tuition voucher for any cost related to his or her college. Some restrictions may apply based on the school.
