CTU Wounded Warrior Military Scholarship Program

About the Scholarship

The CTU Wounded Warrior Scholarship program began in 2008. In partnership with the Yellow Ribbon Fund Inc. and CTU, the scholarship provides an opportunity through education to a population with uncertain futures--those whose lives are forever altered by a debilitating physical injury while serving their country.

Applications for the 2015 scholarships are due no later than September 1st, 2014. See below for details.

What the Scholarships Cover

Each year, 25 wounded service members and 25 spouses of wounded service members receive a full scholarship to attend CTU. The scholarships cover the full cost of tuition, course materials and fees, as well as a new laptop computer.

Attend College Anywhere, Anytime

All CTU Wounded Warrior Scholarships and CTU Wounded Warrior Spouse Scholarship recipients complete their degrees online via the Internet, allowing students to take classes from anywhere in the world. The virtual campus at CTU is a supportive environment for recovering service members to begin and continue their education as they receive rehabilitation services. Additionally, the virtual campus provides an opportunity for CTU Wounded Warrior Spouse Scholarship recipients to visit and care for their spouses as they recover without interrupting their studies.

CTU Wounded Warrior Spouse Scholarship Program

When an injured member of the military returns home, it is their spouse who often takes on the role of breadwinner. The need to move from base to base presents an obstacle to pursuing an education. As a result, military spouses enter the workforce with limited education. In an effort to assist this population, CTU created the Wounded Warrior Spouse Scholarship program.
