USA Care Scholarship

USA Cares and Sullivan University

USA Cares and Sullivan University care deeply about our veterans, their families, and the sacrifices they have made while unselfishly serving their country and their fellow citizens. We also understand how sometimes a veteran may require assistance during difficult times. In honor of our military veterans, USA Cares and Sullivan University have joined together to assist those veterans and employees of USA Cares who desire to seek educational opportunities to enhance their professional careers. 

As part of those efforts, Sullivan University agrees to provide a scholarship competition for two full tuition-only scholarships. Participants are limited to USA Cares clients, full-time employees, and the current spouses of each previous group. Eligible individuals committed to and desirous of additional education to enhance their professional careers and opportunities are encouraged to apply and compete for these scholarships. Two winners will be selected from the applications and other required material submitted.
