The Pat Tillman Foundation has announced that the new Leadership Through Action - Tillman Military Scholars program is accepting applications.

The new Leadership Through Action initiative continues to support the mission of the foundation to carry forward Pat Tillman's legacy of leadership and civic action by supporting future generations of leaders who embody the American tradition of citizen service.

Individuals eligible for the Leadership Through Action - Tillman Military Scholars program include veterans and active service members of both pre- and post-9/11 service; service members who wish to start, finish, or further their education; service members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, National Guard, and Reserve); service members pursuing undergraduate, graduate, post-graduate, two-year, four-year, public, private, vocational, and trade degrees or certifications; and dependants of service members (children and spouses).

The selection committee will review applications according to unmet financial need, educational and career ambitions, length of service, record of personal achievement, essay question responses, and demonstration of service to others in the community and a desire to continue such service. Please note that applications will be separated into two pools: service members and dependents.
