Special Military Spouse Scholarships
Kaplan University/ThanksUSA Scholarship
In honor of the commitment and sacrifice made by our military families, Kaplan University is proud to offer one full tuition scholarship through ThanksUSA for an eligible military spouse. The Kaplan/ThanksUSA scholarship will cover the full cost of an online undergraduate degree program at Kaplan University. Applicants must meet all ThanksUSA eligibility guidelines, have a 3.0 GPA from high school or prior college coursework, and be a first-time student to Kaplan University pursuing an associate’s or bachelor’s degree (excluding pre-licensure and associate of science nursing programs). The scholarship is designed to aid a recipient who is the current spouse of an active-duty service member including those serving in the reserve or guard of the U.S. Armed Forces.
PLEASE NOTE - To apply you must complete the ThanksUSA online application and identify Kaplan University as your school of choice. If an applicant selects Kaplan University as their school of choice, but does not receive Kaplan/ThanksUSA scholarship, or declines the Kaplan/ThanksUSA full scholarship, they will still be considered for a $3,000 scholarship from ThanksUSA. If not selected for the Kaplan/ThanksUSA full scholarship, applicants may be eligible for other scholarship opportunities to attend Kaplan University.
Linda J. Romeo Scholarship
The Northern Virginia Community College Educational Foundation and NVCC's Student Financial Aid Office are joining ThanksUSA once again this year to offer the Linda J. Romeo/ThanksUSA scholarship. This $4,000 scholarship will be awarded to a female military spouse residing in the National Capital Region attending Northern Virginia Community College.
Please Note – To apply you must complete the ThanksUSA online application. If approved for ThanksUSA scholarship funds, applicants will be asked to complete a supplemental NVCC scholarship application.
