VFW 6095 Marshall Schildmeyer Award Winners Announced

Congratulations to Coast Guard Veteran Tiffany Singleton and Army Veteran Nicholas Bradd for thier VFW 6095 Marshall Schildmeyer Scholarship Award for the Spring 2024 Semester. 

 

NEW Moonbeam Scholarship Student Need Fund

The VRS starting February 1, 2024 will be offering a one-time student need scholarship fund called the Moonbeam. Current full-time military-connected and veteran students who are eligible for VRS services can apply for up to a $500 scholarship award if a full time student in good standing at NKU. This scholarship was created to aid in a need that may prevent immediate academic success. For example, however not absolute, would be a car repair preventing access to in person classes, or a broken laptop and you no longer can attend online courses, etc. The need should be justified within the write-up, and will go to the VRS “board” for review and approval. Currently, the fund has limited dollars, so please only apply if you have a real need to address immediately to support you in your educational goals. Once funding is exhausted we will put the program on hold.

If you have any questions please contact the VRS at veteransresource@nku.edu, call 859-572-7867 or stop by UC 131. Please submit all applications at the Moonbeam Scholarship Fund Link here.  

To Donate to the Fund please use this link and put "Moonbeam" in the comments section - thank you!
