*Application opens Feb. 3, with a March 3 due date
The mission of the Pat Tillman Foundation is to invest in military veterans and
their spouses through academic scholarships – building a diverse community of
leaders committed to service to others.

Each year, the Pat Tillman Foundation selects up to 60 Tillman Scholars:
military veterans and spouses who embody Pat’s unwavering commitment to service,
learning and action. The scholars chosen demonstrate clear academic and career
goals, extraordinary leadership potential, and a deep desire to create positive
change through their work in the fields of medicine, law, business, policy,
technology, education and the arts. Students from all fields are eligible to
apply. The scholarship is not a gift; it’s an investment in excellence and
potential. Scholars receive the benefits of leadership development and a
community of peers and mentors to help them reach their fullest potential as

Since its inception, 347 Tillman Military Scholars nationwide have been awarded
over $6 million. This year, 60 new Tillman Military Scholars join Current and
Network Tillman Military Scholars both online and in‐person at the annual Pat
Tillman Leadership Summit and subsequent regional gatherings throughout the
U.S., as well as at Pat’s Run each April.
