To honor the sacrifices of our men and women in uniform, Capella University, an accredited online university and a leader in online education, is offering five $10,000 scholarships to service members wounded in Operation Enduring Freedom or Operation Iraqi Freedom. Titled "Spirit of Capella Scholarships For Injured Service Members," the scholarships may be applied to any of Capella's online degree programs. Approximately 15 percent of Capella students are members of the military.
"As a university with a significant number of students who are members of the military, Capella is committed to doing its part to support those men and women who have given so much in service to our country," said Jim Landerkin, Capella's Federal Program Manager.
To qualify, applicants must be enrolled in a Capella degree program during the quarter immediately following the announcement of receiving a scholarship. The award will be distributed evenly over the eight quarters following the announcement.
