LARAMIE, Wyo. — The University of Wyoming is among five colleges nationwide selected for the Pat Tillman Military Scholars University Partnership.
The partnership supports active and veteran service members and their families with scholarship money.
Tillman Military Scholarships cover not only direct study-related expenses such as tuition and fees, but also other areas, such as housing and child care. Scholarships are allocated to individual applicants through both the Pat Tillman Foundation and select university partners with existing support programs and enrollment.
Recipient schools are selected for the partnership based on their dedication to the nation's service members.
The Tillman scholars program is in memory of former Arizona Cardinals defensive back Pat Tillman who quit the NFL to serve in the military. He died in action in Afghanistan.
