Purdue University Global/National Military Family Association Scholarship

The Scholarship is designed to empower military spouses and families of retirees by making a degree financially attainable as well as removing other barriers so that an education is not one of the many sacrifices a military spouse has to make.

Highlights of the Purdue University Global/National Military Family Association Scholarship

• The Scholarship covers up to 47% of tuition costs based on current tuition rates.

• The flexibility of our 100% online programs* eliminates the risk of a PCS halting your studies.

• Our programs include options in high-demand career areas and you can even tailor your studies to support mobile-friendly careers.

• Book and/or course materials are provided at no additional cost.†

• The Scholarship is available for undergraduate studies (special tuition rates are available for master’s-level programs for military spouses).
