Press Release from American College of Technology
St. Joseph, Mo., March 25, 2014 – “We’re giving back to those who have served,” Richard Dodson, ACOT Military Education Executive Director said. “Those who can no longer be in the military need to have an avenue for when they transition out; this is the best way that we could reach those who have been affected most by combat.”
This year ACOT has committed $364,400 to the Warrior Transition Command for a total of 10 full scholarships, amounting to $36,440 each. 5 of those scholarships with be given to wounded service members and 5 to spouses or dependents of wounded service members.
“Should a soldier become wounded where he cannot go back to work their spouse may have to take over,” Dodson said. “This is just a small way that we can get out there and really help the men and women in the service.”
The wounded warrior and wounded spouse scholarship will cover the full cost of tuition, course materials and fees. Because ACOT courses are 100% online, students are able to earn their degree from anywhere in the world at a location that’s convenient. All lectures are offered live online and are also recorded for easy review.
Applications for Wounded Warrior Scholarships are being accepted now. Apply online at acot.edu/online/wtc. A final decision on recipients will be made July 1, 2014.
