Military Scholarship 

  • Active Duty/Reserve

Military Students can receive a scholarship in the form of a $100 reduction in tuition per academic credit ($300 reduction per academic course).

To receive this scholarship, the active duty or reserve service member, veteran, or spouse/dependent of active duty or reserve service member must complete an Atlantic University Military Scholarship application, submit an essay, and show proof of service by supplying the university with supporting documents.

Each scholarship is reviewed annually. Review begins one year from the student’s first enrollment date and will continue each year until graduation or program completion.
