Columbia Southern University is proud to award a total of six scholarships through the Hero Behind the Hero Scholarship Program. CSU recognizes the sacrifices made by the family members of America’s military men and women, and public safety personnel (firefighters, law enforcement officers, EMTs & dispatchers).
Each award date, one scholarship will be awarded to the spouse or child of a National Guard or active military man or woman and one will be awarded to the spouse or child of public safety personnel.
The scholarship will cover up to $12,600 in one online degree program. The scholarship will be applied directly to the recipient’s tuition for up to three years or until the completion of the selected online degree program, whichever comes first.
This scholarship covers tuition only. Textbooks and fees will be the responsibility of the scholarship recipient. The CSU Book Grant/Loan-a-Book program does not apply to students utilizing a CSU scholarship.
Two scholarships (one for the military spouse or child and one for the public safety personnel spouse or child) will be presented on the award dates listed.
All awards will be announced by the last day of the award month. All applicants will receive an email notification.
Active/Reserve Military: By law CSU CANNOT accept a copy of Military ID
Please submit the scholarship application by the end of the application period for the scholarship award date you wish to be considered for.
