Military scholarships

Active military servicemembers, veterans, and their families can find military scholarships to help pay for college. No matter what branch of the military, these scholarships can help you find the free money you need to pursue your higher education. Available for high school and college students, a military scholarship is a great way to find free money to help cover your college expenses. The scholarships listed here are distinct from any education benefits offered as part of military service.

Like grants, scholarships do not have to be repaid. To maximize scholarship opportunities, we recommend that students research and apply for scholarships early.
