Founded in 2008, the Tillman Scholars program supports our nation’s active-duty service members, veterans and military spouses by investing in their higher education. The scholarship covers academic expenses, including tuition and fees, books and living expenses. But scholars receive much more than just funding. Our program unites the best talent and leadership to make a significant, positive impact on our country and our local communities. The Tillman Scholars chosen reflect Pat’s values, strength of character and commitment to service. They demonstrate extraordinary academic and leadership potential, a track record of perseverance, and a deep desire to impact change through their studies in the fields of medicine, law, business, policy, technology, education and the arts.
