When Fort Rucker soldiers were given the chance to ask the Army’s Chief of Staff questions, the first question was about military tuition assistance.
General Odierno said they are left with half of what they spent in the first half of the fiscal year, for the next 6 months.
And even though the tuition assistance isn’t being cut completely, Troy University says they will continue to accept applications for their military scholarship program. This is due to all the uncertainty surrounding the budget.
The university if offering three scholarships for military members.
It could save someone taking a full undergraduate course load 360 dollars.
In a release from the university: “The Troy for Troops Active Duty Military Discount Scholarship, Military Reserves Discount Scholarship and National Guard Discount Scholarship will require service members to provide proof of eligibility on an application form available on the University's website by clicking the Military Tuition Assistance Information button. Once eligibility is verified, the scholarships will discount any undergraduate tuition charges in excess of $250.
The scholarships are available to both full- and part-time undergraduate students through the final term of the 2013-2014 academic year, and apply to both in-classroom and online courses.”
