Technical University (CTU) today announced its call for applications
for the school’s 2015 Wounded Warrior Scholarship Program. Established
in 2008 in partnership with the Yellow Ribbon Fund, the program fully
covers the cost of education at CTU for active duty servicemembers and
veterans who were injured while serving our country, as well as the
spouses of wounded servicemembers and veterans. The scholarship covers
tuition, books and fees for a single degree program, plus a new laptop
CTU awards 50 scholarships annually – 25 to wounded servicemembers and
25 to spouses of wounded warriors. To date, CTU has provided 300
scholarships valued at $4.5 million to honor our brave heroes and their
“Through this annual award program, we strive to put education and
training within reach for these men and women so they can redefine the
next stage of their lives,” said Bob Lally, M.S., retired naval captain
and director of CTU's Wounded Warrior Scholarship Program.
For many, the scholarship provides an opportunity to gain the education
and skills needed for a military promotion or to start a new career
after military service ends. For others, the scholarship may provide a
pathway to a new career opportunity or career advancement, which may be
necessary for those who, as result of their spouse’s injuries, are now
the financial head of household.
Long Standing Commitment to Military Members
CTU makes it a priority to support wounded warriors and veteran spouses
who often serve as caregivers and seek flexible career opportunities in
order to support their families. Through the Wounded Warriors
Scholarship Program, both military members and their spouses have an
opportunity to pursue their education and advance their careers.
“I wasn’t able to go to college before, and now that I’m able to, I have
to grab the opportunity,” said Norma Boyd, a Wounded Warrior spouse
scholarship recipient. She and her husband, wounded warrior and Army
Specialist Brandon Boyd, both received scholarships in 2013. “It’s been
challenging, but we’ve had a lot of faith. And we have each other’s
backs. That’s why CTU giving us the opportunity to do this together
makes it more special, because now it’s another journey that we get to
Part of CTU’s mission is to provide a quality college education that is
flexible, accessible, welcoming and rewarding to and their spouses. The
school’s relationship with military and veteran students dates back to
1965 when the Colorado Springs campus opened its doors to support the
educational goals of students from five nearby military bases.
“As the past Chairman for the Scholarship Selection Committee, it has
been a true honor to partner with CTU and select the wounded warrior and
spouse scholarship recipients,” said retired Army Command Sergeant Major
Martin Pate III. “I look forward to chairing this year’s selection
committee again and am deeply grateful to CTU for taking on this
important challenge to give back to those who protect our nation."
Approximately one-third of current CTU students are active military,
reservists, veterans and military spouses. CTU addresses their needs
with flexible class options, often taught by instructors who are also
veterans, access to teams of trained experts who understand military
education benefits, and by providing transfer credit for eligible
military training and prior college experience. CTU supports active duty
military students while they are deployed, by offering programs that are
available entirely online – anywhere and anytime.
