Ashford University to Offer Scholarships to Military Spouses in San Diego County
Homefront Heroes scholarship can be applied to an Associate's or Bachelor's degree at Ashford

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- For the eighth consecutive year, Ashford University is offering five Homefront Heroes scholarships to military spouses in San Diego County. Recipients can use the full-tuition scholarship for either an Associate's or Bachelor's degree at Ashford University.

Last year's Homefront Heroes scholarship recipients accept their awards.

"As Americans, we owe a debt of gratitude to our military community and we honor the sacrifices they have made to preserve our freedom," said Dr. Craig Swenson, president and CEO of Ashford University. "No military member stands alone of course.  The unwavering support of military spouses and families is critical.  The Homefront Heroes scholarship serves to recognize the incredible spouses of our service members for their own sacrifices by giving them an opportunity to pursue their college online degree."

Military spouses interested in applying for this scholarship should submit two short essays about their education and career goals. Essays will be accepted between September 11 and November 5, 2017.
