“We at Ashford University are so proud and supportive of our nations’ servicemen and women, who selflessly defend our liberties and freedom everyday,” said Dr. Jane McAuliffe, President of Ashford University. “We could not think of a better way of thanking these service members and their families than by helping them earn a bachelor’s or master’s degree in a way that is convenient and accessible.”

“So many brave members of the military are moved around because of their duties and are forced to transfer credits and change schools every time they are stationed in a new location,” said Chris Spohn, Vice President of Admissions at Ashford University. “Ashford is unique because it affords these men and women the flexibility to earn a degree from wherever in the world they might be.”

The grant will allow eligible students the following benefits:
