CINCINNATI – In keeping with its mission to make higher education opportunities accessible to all, Union Institute & University (UI&U) today announced that it will offer a scholarship to assist members of the U.S. National Guard and Reserve components of the U.S. military.
Scholarship recipients will receive a 10 percent tuition scholarship for the first 26 hours registered in undergraduate studies and a five percent tuition scholarship if enrolled in a graduate program. In addition, the final four-hour credit course will be free.
“The scholarship allows Union to give back to those who bravely and selflessly serve our country,” said Dr. Roger H. Sublett, president of the private, non-profit university. “Union is committed to help our students lead exemplary lives as servant leaders in their communities. Servicemen and women emulate the commitment to servant leadership every day. We are honored to provide them with this scholarship opportunity in appreciation of their dedication to our nation, and with hopes that they will use their Union education to continue to make the world a better, safer place.”
UI&U will waive the application fee, and may be able to accept transfer credits from other higher education institutions. To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must be accepted and enrolled fulltime in a program at UI&U and must maintain good academic standing through graduation.
The scholarship may be used in conjunction with Guard/Reserve Tuition Reimbursement, employer tuition reimbursement, or state and federal grants, the combination of which is not to exceed the total cost of tuition, books, and fees to the guardsman or reservists.
