The Pat Tillman Foundation plans to award scholarships worth more than $1 million to 60 service members and their spouses for the 2013 class of Tillman Military Scholars.
This is the fifth year for the program. Tillman scholars are selected on criteria such as:
- Record of personal achievement
- Demonstration of service to others in the community
- Desire to continue to serve others and make a positive impact on your community
- Leadership potential
- Compelling, thoughtful, genuine and thorough essay question responses
There are two essay questions for service members. The first focuses on how military service changed your life. The second essay addresses your education goals and ambitions for continued community involvement and service.
Military spouse applicants are asked to explain your spouses service and how its inspired your service and sacrifice. Also, explain your educational and career goals and your continued service to the community and others.
Further selection criteria can be found on the Become a TMS page. The Tillman Military Scholars application opens on Monday, January 14. The application will remain open until 11:59:59 PM PST on Friday, February 15.
