Starting this fall, University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) will be offering a tuition assistance grant to active-duty military personnel currently using military tuition assistance through a new Active-Duty Tuition Assistance Grant.
“We are honored to support the active-duty community here in Colorado Springs and beyond by introducing the Active-Duty Tuition Assistance Grant,” said Crista Hill, director of Veteran and Military Affairs. “This grant will help provide access to education for our active-duty undergraduate students utilizing their military tuition assistance benefit at UCCS. It is our privilege to further demonstrate our commitment to those currently serving on active duty.”
The grant – for undergraduate students only – is automatically applied to all eligible students. UCCS also waives application fees for active-duty military in general.
“By bridging the gap between military tuition assistance and UCCS tuition, we aim to assist our students in achieving their academic and career goals,” Hill said. “This investment strengthens not only the students and their families, but our community.”
