Liberty University is proud of our country’s heroes who have given so much for our freedom. We know that this freedom comes at a high price for many. To show appreciation for our service members who have been wounded while protecting our liberties, Liberty University has created the Heroes Fund Scholarship.
The Heroes Fund Scholarship is currently being offered to Gulf War veterans/service members meeting one or more of the following criteria*:
Students awarded the Heroes Fund Scholarship are governed by the "Recipient Standard Operating Procedure" and will be required to sign the acknowledging receipt and understanding.
*Applications are reviewed on a case by case basis. If you feel you should receive this scholarship, but your situation is not listed above, please complete this application and submit supporting documentation.
Documentation needed for review of Scholarship Eligibility (based on eligibility above):
Important Note: All Veteran Affairs documents must include all pages beginning with the cover page through to the signature page. Submitting incomplete VA documents will delay the review and decision of your Heroes Fund Scholarship application.
Students approved for this scholarship will be awarded an amount to cover all remaining tuition and fees once financial aid, military aid, and Veteran’s Affairs Education benefits (GI Bill) have been deducted from the total amount of tuition and fees charged.
Funding is only awarded for classes that contribute to the degree being pursued. Continued award of this scholarship for subsequent degree programs will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
This scholarship is provided by the generous donation of Liberty University supporters. Continued award of this scholarship may be re-evaluated based on the availability of funds and increased need/applications.
The Heroes Fund Scholarship program is intended for those students who are pursuing their first Bachelor and/or Graduate degree. Applicants who already obtained a Bachelor and Graduate degree at another institution or Liberty University need not apply.
