CTU Patriot Scholarship
In 2008, Colorado Technical University created a scholarship to give back to those whose lives have been altered due to injury while serving in the United States Armed Forces. For many, the impact of an injury reaches farther than the service member alone. That’s why CTU annually awards a scholarship to fifty eligible wounded service members, their spouses, non-medical attendant or caregiver and dependents.
As of January 2019, CTU has awarded 550 scholarships, totaling over $11 million.
Who is Eligible to Apply for the CTU Patriot Scholarship?
If you are interested in applying for the CTU Patriot Scholarship, you must be an active service member or honorably discharged veteran of the United States Armed Forces.

What Happens if I Am Selected?
