State Scholarships

Scholarships for Children and Spouses of Deceased or Disabled Veterans

The Scholarship for Children and Spouses of Deceased or Disabled Veterans (CSDDV) provides scholarships for dependent children or un-remarried spouses of Florida veterans who have died as a result of service-connected injuries, diseases, or disabilities sustained while on active duty or who have been certified by the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs as having service-connected 100% permanent and total disabilities. CSDDV also provides funds for dependent children whose parent is classified as a prisoner of war or missing in action by the Armed Forces of the United States or as civilian personnel captured while serving with the consent or authorization of the United States Government during wartime service.

Tillman Military Scholars Program

The Pat Tillman Foundation’s Tillman Military Scholars Program supports our nation’s active and veteran service members and their families by removing financial barriers to completing a degree or certification program of choice. The scholarships cover not only direct study-related expenses such as tuition and fees, but also other needs, including housing and childcare. The application opens annually each spring and a new class of Tillman Military Scholars is announced each June.
