Military Appreciation Scholarship

Piedmont International University is grateful to all the men and women who serve in our Armed Forces. With profound appreciation, we offer a scholarship to those who wish to further their education through the military’s Tuition Assistance program.

This scholarship covers the complete cost of online tuition beyond the $250 per credit hour paid by the military (TA). The students pay no tuition, and those who qualify for both Tuition Assistance and the G.I. Bill may receive additional benefits. All other standard fees apply. This award is not stackable with any other institutional aid. There is no award deadline.

Our Spurgeon School of Online Education delivers accredited, interactive, quality education to students anywhere in the world where the internet is available. Our built-in flexibility and seven-week sessions make it convenient for anyone to study the Bible and/or train for the ministry. Several undergraduate programs and one master’s degree are available online in their entirety. Please encourage service members to take advantage of this opportunity.  More military benefits are described here.
