“Since inception, American Public University System has always been deeply committed to the veteran community; in fact, our original founder was a veteran himself,” said APUS President Nuno Fernandes. “We are very proud to be one of the few schools in the country that offers a grant for veterans, underscoring our ongoing commitment to those who have served, plus their families.” 

The grant – available for use immediately – can be applied to both undergraduate and master’s-level programs at American Public University and American Military University. To further minimize costs, veterans and their family members also receive no-cost undergraduate eBooks.
