McDaniel College has announced a new Military Legacy Scholarship for all military veterans, active-duty military personnel, and their children. This guaranteed scholarship, valued at up to $100,000 over four years, is available to all eligible first-year and transfer students applying to McDaniel for fall 2019 admission. There is no limit to the number of scholarships awarded by McDaniel.
“Army ROTC has been a tradition at the College since 1919 and we are proud to have one of the oldest ROTC programs in the nation, “ said McDaniel President Roger N. Casey. “As we look forward to 2019 when we will mark the momentous 100-year anniversary of our Green Terror Battalion, I am excited to announce this new scholarship to our prospective students as our way of giving back to the military community."
The $25,000 annual scholarship (or $20,000 per year for commuter students) is renewable each year to students who maintain continuous enrollment and satisfactory academic progress. To apply for the scholarship, students must complete and submit a Military Legacy Scholarship eligibility form and provide verification of military service.
McDaniel has consistently been recognized as a Military Friendly School for doing the most for members of the military, veterans, and their families. The College also participates in the Post-9/11 GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon Program, which covers up to the cost of full tuition at McDaniel. Therefore, any veteran or child of a veteran who is not eligible for or has exhausted their Yellow Ribbon benefits can be considered for McDaniel’s new Military Legacy Scholarship.
McDaniel also offers an Educator’s Legacy Scholarship for high school seniors whose parent or guardian works full-time in K-12 or community college education and an Alumni Legacy Scholarship for the children and grandchildren of McDaniel alumni.
