Arizona State University has announced a new way that the school is proud to support the troops: the Military Active Duty Reservist Commitment Scholarship.
The scholarship aims to help undergraduate military students cover the costs of ASU’s online degree programs. It provides funding for out-of-pocket tuition expenses not already covered by military Tuition Assistance. This means some of ASU’s top programs are now more accessible and affordable for those students who struggle to finance the rest of their education.
This new scholarship especially benefits those actively serving by not just diminishing the financial burden, but also providing the flexibility of remote access to course materials through our innovative online education platform. With ASU Online, military students can access online courses, no matter where they’re stationed or residing.
It’s part of ASU’s ongoing mission to help put education back within reach for today’s military students. Retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Benjamin C. Freakley serves as a special adviser to the university president for leadership initiatives and serves to help ASU elevate our standards as a pioneering institution. Freakley says it’s our collective duty to fully support the education goals of those who serve our country, and ASU wholeheartedly agrees.
