Trident is set to expand its Military Success Scholarship for the military fiscal year 2023. In addition to the undergraduate level, this scholarship is now open to eligible graduate and transfer students.
CHANDLER, Ariz., Dec. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Trident University International (Trident) is pleased to announce the latest updates to its Military Success Scholarship (MSS) for undergraduate, graduate, and transfer students.
Effective starting for the November 28 8-week session, Trident will expand this program to eligible graduate and transfer students who have used a portion of their benefits at a different institution and have exhausted their fiscal year TA at Trident.
First introduced in 2017 to support Trident’s active duty military population, the MSS is designed to help students who have exhausted their annual military tuition assistance benefits, by reducing their cost per credit hour by 50% for up to six courses.
To be eligible, these students must successfully complete a minimum of two courses at Trident utilizing the rest of their available TA and meet all other eligibility requirements. If eligible, they will qualify for the 50% cost reduction beginning on their third course. Transfer students will need to provide proof of exhaustion of their military fiscal year 2023 benefits to be eligible for the MSS.
“Trident is excited to expand its Military Success Scholarship to provide even more opportunities for our Active Duty, National Guard, and Reserve students to continue working towards their academic goals,” states John Kline, President, American InterContinental University System.
Scholarship recipients are required to:
- Currently serve in the U.S. Armed Services (Active Duty, Reserve, or National Guard)
- Meet Trident admissions requirements
- Be currently enrolled in a Trident undergraduate, graduate, or ISS Graduate Certificate program
- Successfully complete a minimum of 4 courses within the military fiscal year (October 1- September 30)
- Maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) and a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 for undergraduate and 3.0 for graduate.
