Serving Those Who Serve Through Our Military Scholarship Program
Every day, the people of America depend on the men and women of the United States Armed Forces to protect our land, values, and freedoms both at home and throughout the world. And the spouses of those in the Armed Forces also do their part to support military personnel, as well as take care of their children—all while building a better future for themselves and their military family.
Why Was the Military Scholarship Essay Contest Created?
Everybody knows that education is valuable, but it can sometimes also be expensive. Paying for your education on top of everyday expenses can be difficult, and every little bit can help! Therefore, in an attempt to try to show gratitude to the sacrifices made by the United States of America’s military families, eLearners is offering a scholarship worth $1,000 to eligible military veterans and spouses in an effort to help offset the costs associated with enhancing your education and pursuing those next steps in your civilian career path.
Because financing one’s education can affect a whole family’s financial situation, all active military, veterans, as well as their spouses can apply for this scholarship. When awarded, the recipient can use the $1,000 tuition voucher for any cost associated with his or her school bursar’s office (some restrictions may apply based on the school).
