Celebrate National Military Appreciation Month

In 1999, Congress designated May as National Military Appreciation Month to recognize our nation’s military personnel and their families. National Military Appreciation Month includes Military Spouse Appreciation Day on May 8th, Armed Forces Day on May 16th, and Memorial Day on May 25th.

This month, would like to honor, remember and thank the men, women and families who have dedicated their lives to serving our country. We would like to thank each and every one of you for the sacrifices you’ve made and for your commitment to protecting our freedom.

To all military spouses and children, thank you for being the heroes at home, tirelessly supporting your loved ones as they serve. Thank you for your devotion, courage and commitment.

In celebration, we wanted to also make you aware of a new Education Technology Grant offered by Grantham University. Eligible grant recipients will receive a Dell laptop to take full advantage of the portability of Grantham’s online courses - so you can truly fit education into your life instead of arranging your life around your education. For more information about this program and its eligibility requirements, please visit:

For nearly 60 years, Grantham University has served the educational needs of military service members, veterans and spouses. Grantham was founded in 1951 by a veteran of World War II to help veterans prepare for new jobs and a better future upon their return to civilian life.

Grantham was founded on the belief that every service member, veteran, and member of a military family should have the opportunity to pursue an undergraduate or graduate degree. It is because of this belief and our commitment to you the nation’s military that the University created several military scholarship programs which reduce the tuition rate and include a Textbook and Software Grant that covers the cost of required textbooks and software, so earning a college degree can become a reality for everyone:

* Military Scholarships for Service Members
* Veterans Scholarship Program
* Military Family Scholarship Program
* Military Severely Injured Scholarship Program *

From everyone at to each and every one of you - thank you for your Service!

*Textbook and Software Grant is available for spouses and dependents only. For more details on the Military Severely Injured Scholarship Program, click here.
