  • Military Scholarships: Deadline - Varies

    Posted by Stacy Davidson at 9/8/2017

    Every branch of the United States military offers some form of educational assistance for its enlisted personnel. Over the years, military service has offered a great many students the opportunity to serve their country while earning money to help pay for a college education. Scholarships and grants from the U.S. Military are a valuable source of financial assistance for students struggling to meet the rising costs of college tuition. However, students considering any branch of the military as a source for scholarships or grants should understand that these are all award-for-service programs. Students will be required to enlist in a branch of the armed services, and will be expected to fully complete their service contract. Students should carefully weigh the benefits of military service against their responsibilities as active-duty service-members.
