April Krowel Receives Tillman Scholarship

April Krowel, from the Department of Counseling Psychology and Guidance Services, has received the Tillman Scholarship, named for former NFL player Pat Tillman. Following Tillman's death in 2004, while serving with the U.S. Army’s 75th Ranger Regiment in Afghanistan, his family and friends established the Pat Tillman Foundation. The Tillman Military Scholars program supports our nation’s active and veteran service members and their spouses by removing financial barriers to completing a degree program of choice. The scholarship funds cover not only direct study-related expenses such as tuition and fees, but also other needs, including housing and child care. Members of each class of Tillman Military Scholars represent a rich and diverse set of backgrounds, experiences and ambitions, and are selected based on strong leadership potential and a drive to make a positive impact on others through service.
