About the Scholarship

The CTU Wounded Warrior Scholarship program began in 2008 as a partnership with the Yellow Ribbon Fund Inc. 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 our country in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. Each year, 25 wounded service members and 25 spouses of wounded service members receive a full scholarship to attend CTU.

The window for accepting applications for the 2015 scholarship year has closed. If you have questions regarding your 2015 application or would like to explore possible options for applications not submitted by the deadline please contact WoundedWarriors@ctuonline.edu.

Please check back in early Spring 2015 for new military scholarship opportunities.
