About the Scholarship
In 2008, Colorado Technical University created the Wounded Warrior Scholarship in collaboration with the Yellow Ribbon Fund, Inc. to help give back to those service members whose lives have been altered due to injury while serving in the United States Armed Forces. For many Wounded Warriors, the impact of their service reaches farther than the service member alone. Accordingly, this scholarship annually provides full tuition coverage for a full degree program to fifty eligible wounded service members, their spouses, or their non-medical attendant.
New for 2016:
- Non-medical attendants/caregivers are now eligible
- Scope of injury expanded to include any injury (over 30%) while in service of the US Armed Forces (including Reserves and National Guard)
Colorado Technical University will begin accepting applications for the 2016 Wounded Warrior Scholarship on April 1st, 2015.
What the Scholarships Cover
- Full tuition to any eligible CTU degree program
- Specially-trained military education advisors
- New laptop computer
- Hardcopy or e-books
- 24/7 technical support
