Scholarships - Hero Behind the Hero
Hero Behind the Hero Scholarship Program
Waldorf University is proud to award eight scholarships through the Hero Behind the Hero Scholarship Program. Waldorf recognizes the sacrifices made by the family members of America’s military men and women, and public safety personnel (firefighters, law enforcement officers, EMTs & dispatchers).
Four scholarships will be awarded to the spouse or child of a National Guard or active military man or woman and four will be awarded to the spouse or child of public safety personnel.
The scholarship will cover up to $17,100 in one online degree program. The scholarship will be applied directly to the recipient’s tuition for up to three years or until the completion of the selected online degree program, whichever comes first.
This scholarship covers tuition only. Textbooks will be covered by Waldorf University’s Loan a Book program. All student fees are the responsibility of the student.
Two scholarships (one for the military spouse or child and one for the public safety personnel spouse or child) will be presented on the award date listed.
