Today the Scholarship Diva discusses something very close to my heart: military scholarships.
My oldest son, whom we still call "Tiger" even though he is 26, served in the navy. While he was there he was trained for Vessel Boarding Search and Seizure (VBSS) and arrested a pirate off the coast of Somalia, for which he received a commendation from his Admiral. (Sorry, but if I don't tell you, no one will.) After his time in the navy, he earned a bachelor's in aviation from Embry-Riddle, and is now getting a master's at University of North Dakota, all thanks to the GI bill.
My second son, Matt, is on scholarship as an economics major at West Point. (In case you didn't know, all the military academies are full scholarship.)
My third son, Ben, is a high school senior and is seriously considering the military as a means to a free, or at least cheap, education. He was just researching the ROTC scholarships last night, in fact.
Needless to say (but I'll say it anyway) I respect, love and believe in the military. Here's what the Diva has to tell us.
The ScholarshipDiva loves supporting our military families. These are just a few of the scholarships available for military personnel, veterans, spouses and dependents. Check with your particular branch of service about additional possibilities.
Some scholarship applications may not be open yet for 2014, so pay attention to dates and deadlines.
