Fayetteville State University, an historically Black university in North Carolina, will provide free tuition to all military-connected undergraduate students starting in the fall.
The news comes after a recently released, FSU-funded report by Evocati — titled "Deeds, Not Words: FSU’s Call to Serve" — called FSU the leading HBCU in the nation for military support. Now, as part of its new Military Tuition Scholarship, that support will expand even further. Active-duty military members, veterans, as well as military spouses and children will all be able to attend the university for free.
“Fayetteville State University is proud to be the premier destination, not just in North Carolina but in the nation, for educating military-connected students,” said FSU Chancellor Dr. Darrell T. Allison. “FSU is perfectly positioned here in the Sandhills region to change the landscape on how we think about workforce readiness in today’s ever-changing job market and how we, in higher education, can support veterans and their families in their transitions to the civilian workforce. We’re excited to announce the Military Tuition Scholarship (fully paid) to further support those who sacrificed for our nation in their next chapter in life.”
