Soldiers become scholars with the Pat Tillman Foundation

348. 4.6M. 85. Not sure what these numbers mean? Since 2004, the Pat Tillman Foundation has helped fund military veterans and their spouses with the opportunity for academic  scholarships. Since then, 348 military scholars have been given scholarships, $4.6M has been raised for scholarship support for scholars’ potential, and 85 universities have been attended by these military scholars.

One Tillman Military Scholar in particular, Jon Andrews, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan with U.S. Army Special Forces, recently received the prestigious WMS Hackett-Auerbach Award from the Wilderness Medical Society. He is a third-year medical student as an aspiring anesthesiologist, and attends Duke University School of Medicine in Durham, NC. He is currently part of a team researching Riociguat, which is a treatment for two forms of pulmonary hypertension. As part of his fellowship project, he also teaches students how to prepare for disasters, perform hands-on CPR, and create disaster kits for their homes.

With support like yours via the CengageBrain Extra Credit program for the Pat Tillman Foundation, the hard work Andrews puts in to his research was made possible.
