Coastal Carolina University has created a "Called to Active Duty Scholarship" that will enable students who serve on overseas military duty to continue their education through distance learning courses on the Internet. The scholarship will cover all tuition and miscellaneous expenses for Coastal students while they are deployed outside the United States.
To qualify for the scholarships, students must (1) be enrolled at Coastal in a degree-seeking program, (2) be called to active duty outside the U.S., (3) remain enrolled at Coastal via available distance learning classes, and (4) meet the university's standards for satisfactory academic progress.
The scholarship is available to any active duty, National Guard or Reserve personnel from any branch of military service. For more information, call 349-2313.
