Pillars of Strength Scholarship for Caregivers at UMGC


University of Maryland Global Campus (UMGC) is proud to offer a full ride scholarship opportunity for caregivers of our nation’s service members and veterans who become wounded, injured or ill in the line-of-duty on-or-after September 11, 2001.

The Pillars of Strength Scholarship Program aims to honor the unparalleled selflessness and extraordinary commitment of these caregivers. If you are a caregiver, you know that your dedication often pushes your personal goals to the backburner. This scholarship is designed to help you achieve your education goals in a high-demand, career-focused, undergraduate or graduate program at UMGC.
