3/14/2013 - PARKVILLE, Mo. -- Many people are caught in the middle of current budgetary uncertainties and sequestration, and active duty members of the U.S. military are significantly impacted by recent suspensions to their tuition assistance funds.

In response to these cuts, and in support of the men and women who serve in the U.S. military, Park University has announced it will grant Emergency Military Scholarships to help any qualified active duty military personnel continue their higher education studies.

Park's Emergency Military Scholarship Fund will provide full tuition assistance immediately to those students who are not eligible for GI Bill benefits, Pell Grants or federal loans.

Students interested in receiving these emergency funds are requested to first consider these other possible sources of tuition funding, if needed, from these resources:

· GI Bill Benefits - Military students should contact their education service office or visit http://gibill.va.gov/ to determine eligibility.

· Pell Grants and Federal Loans - Visit www.park.edu/finaid/ to apply and determine your eligibility; applications are currently available for both the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 award years.

"I am proud to lead an organization that has taken these strides to ensure our active duty military students' educational needs are met during these difficult times," said Michael H. Droge, Ph.D., Park University president.

Park University's 8-week Spring II classes begin Monday, March 18. Students interested in Park University's Emergency Military Scholarships should contact the University's Office of Student Financial Services at finaid@park.edu , 816-584-6290 or www.park.edu/finaid . Students may also contact the Park University-Goodfellow campus center at 325-654-4082 or good@park.edu.
