For the 10th year, Colorado Technical University is accepting applications for its Wounded Warrior Scholarship.
The university offers full-tuition education scholarships to wounded, active-duty service members and veterans. Spouses, caregivers, and new for 2018, dependents of wounded service members, are also eligible to apply.
Recipients receive free tuition for any CTU degree program, a new laptop computer and text books or e-books.
Scholarship winners can enroll for associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degree in Business, Criminal Justice, Engineering, Computer Science and Information Technology (including Cyber Security), Healthcare and Nursing, Project Management or Security Studies.
Students can study online or at campuses in Colorado Springs or Aurora and receive a dedicated student success coach, specially-trained military education advisors and 24/7 technical support.
The school created the Wounded Warrior Scholarship in 2008, in partnership with the Yellow Ribbon Fund, Inc. to help provide higher-education opportunities to men and women whose lives have been altered as a result of injury while serving in the United States Armed Forces.
As of January, CTU has awarded 450 scholarships totaling $7.3 million.
The application is available online at http://coloradotech.edu/ww and requires a letter of recommendation, short answer questions and an essay.
Applications for the 2018 scholarships will be accepted through July 31.
The university will announce scholarship recipients on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, and the winners will begin class in January or February 2018.
