Military Scholarships

There are approximately 1,192,700 military students pursuing a bachelor’s degree, with another 241,000 pursuing graduate degrees. That accounts for about 6.1% of the undergraduate population and 6.7% of the graduate population.

In recognition of their dutiful military service, the United States offers higher education benefits to its servicemen and women, to help reduce the financial burden of college and graduate school. Unfortunately, 57% of undergraduates and 64% of graduate students do not receive these benefits. 

As a result, military service members take out an average of $8,000 for college and $18,000 for graduate school. Consequently, the average cumulative debt for a veteran or active duty service member who graduated with a bachelor’s degree is $25,000.

Bold.org is here to help, with a collection of scholarships dedicated to the brave men and women who fight to defend and protect our great country. We thank you for your distinguished service.

I am so grateful for the opportunities Bold.org has provided me to help fund my college education. The options are endless, and their commitment to helping and profiling successful students is remarkable.

My college education has and continues to be the most formative experience of my life, and the support and advocacy offered on Bold.org is the greatest recognition I can receive as a student.
