Tillman Foundation Announces 2015 Scholars

Today, Marie Tillman, President and Co-Founder of the Pat Tillman Foundation announced the names of the 60 veterans, service members, and military spouses selected as the 2015 Tillman Scholars. The class will receive more than $1.7 million in scholarship money to pursue higher education. Since it was founded in 2004, the Pat Tillman Foundation, named for the NFL player-turned Army Ranger who was killed in Afghanistan in 2004, has invested nearly $12 million in academic support to its 400 scholars at 108 academic institutions nationwide.

“Pat made his mark as a husband, teammate, soldier and brother. He believed we should always strive to be part of something bigger than ourselves,” writes Marie Tillman, in a press release. “In their own unique ways, the 2015 Tillman Scholars stand apart for their humility and selfless service in and out of uniform. We are proud to fuel their passion for learning and action, so they can make their mark as leaders for our country and communities.”
