ThanksUSA Scholarship Program
ThanksUSA “thanks” the men and women of the United States Armed Forces by awarding need-based college, technical and vocational school scholarships for their children and spouses.
In 2019, ThanksUSA will award up to 500 scholarships. Most recipients will receive awards of $3,000 to use for qualified educational expenses, and several eligible military dependents will earn full or partial undergraduate scholarships to Purdue University Global’s online program.
Applicants must be the spouse or the dependent child (age 24 or younger) of a U.S. military servicemember who served at least 180 days active duty after 9/11/2001. Applicants must also be high school seniors, high school graduates or college/technical school undergraduates with a minimum 2.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale. (Spouses may also use the award for non-degree licensure and certification programs regardless of whether an undergraduate degree has already been completed.)
