Once a year each of the colleges and the University acknowledge and award deserving students. Scholarships are open to full or part time students with at least six credit hours, and a GPA of at least 2.0. Applicants need to submit an essay saluting an American Veteran, past or present, which may be read at the presentation ceremony. The selected recipients' essay are evaluated on content, clear point, and subject passion. The Gold Star Families may help in the selection if they so request.
A living legacy for each of our Heroes will be reached when endowment scholarships have reached $50,000 in memory of each Fallen Hero.
