Applications have just opened for the 2021 Open University (OU) Disabled Veterans’ Scholarship Fund.
This generous fund will provide scholarships for up to 50 disabled veterans to build on their unique military skills and experiences by studying at undergraduate or postgraduate level for free. The OU has awarded 160 such scholarships so far, helping individuals from a variety of service backgrounds and diagnosed with a range of physical disabilities and complex mental health conditions. Each scholarship is tailored to fully support all disabled veterans, injured during or due to their service, as they transition to civilian life, providing a free OU education and wraparound disability and careers service support.
Maria said, “This is a great opportunity for disabled veterans, injured in, or due to, military service, access to free Open University education and develop relevant knowledge, and build a bright future. I encourage veterans to explore the OU Community and apply for the available scholarships.”
The application deadline is midnight on 9th July 2021. More information is available here: http://www.open.ac.uk/courses/choose/veterans
