Heroes Scholarship Information
What is a Heroes Scholarship?
The Heroes Scholarship was started in honor of the first line responders who put their lives on the line daily to protect the American public. The Heroes Scholarship acts as a tuition discount. This means that a Heroes recipient pays less per credit hour than a non-Heroes recipient. The Heroes Scholarship does not provide cash payments of any kind to a recipient.
Where can I use a Heroes Scholarship?
The Heroes Scholarship is available only for the Master of Justice Administration Program at Faulkner University.
