CTU Patriot Scholarship
In 2008, Colorado Technical University established the Wounded Warrior Scholarship to give back to those whose lives have been altered due to injury while serving in the United States Armed Forces. By 2017, the scholarship had evolved to include not only service members, but their eligible spouses, caregivers, and unmarried dependent children. With this change in eligibility criteria, in 2018, the scholarship was renamed the CTU Patriot Scholarship to better exemplify the recipients, who are true patriots.
This scholarship covers full tuition for a single degree program, a laptop, text books, and fees as outlined in the CTU Patriot Scholarship Terms & Conditions. However, recipients choosing to borrow more than $2,000.00 in federal and/or state student loans per academic year will reduce their eligibility for the full-tuition scholarship dollar for dollar. The scholarship can be combined with the reduced military tuition rate as well as the Post 9/11 GI Bill® and Vocational Readiness and Employment benefits.
