The University of Maryland has been awarded $100,000 by the Pat Tillman Foundation to establish Leadership Through Action Tillman Military Scholarships. The scholarships will cover study-related expenses, including tuition, fees, books, and room and board, for veteran and active servicemen and their dependents. Other needs, such as child care, are also covered by the scholarship.

"Student veterans face issues beyond those of the average student. The University of Maryland has the unique capability to address their concerns and needs and to make a difference in their lives and those of their families through the Tillman Military Scholarships," said Linda M. Clement, vice president for student affairs. The university will begin offering the scholarship in the fall semester, but applications are currently available. The application deadline is April 27, 2009. For more information on the Tillman Military Scholarships, contact Dr. Marsha Guenzler-Stevens at 301-314-8505 or mguenzle@umd.edu.

Through its Leadership Through Action initiative, the Pat Tillman Foundation is dedicated to supporting educational opportunities for servicemen and their families and inspiring leadership in young people across the country. The foundation also sponsors programs at the University of Idaho, Mississippi State University and University of Arkansas. The Pat Tillman Foundation was created by Pat's family and friends, following his death in April 2004, while he was deployed with the U.S. Army in Afghanistan. The Foundation's goal and mission is to carry forward Pat's legacy by inspiring people to make positive changes in themselves and in the world around them.
