November 30, 2007 - Grantham University, an online university specializing in educating working adults, today announced that it would award Sergeant Scott Csanadi one of 54 Army National Guard Scholarships. SGT Csanadi, a member of the Army National Guard for one year, serves with the 3175th Military Police Co. in Warrenton, Mo. SGT Csanadi will be awarded the scholarship in a presentation at noon on Sunday, December 2 at the ARNG Armory in Mexico, Mo.
"Grantham's scholarship gives me the opportunity to finish my education without worrying about the financial obligation," said SGT Csanadi. "Grantham's online program works great for me because I sustained injuries while serving in Afghanistan. I can study and work from home at my convenience."
In conjunction with GX® magazine, a nationwide publication for members of the National Guard and their families, Grantham University provided one full, four-year scholarship to an Army National Guard member in each of the 50 states and four U.S. territories including DC, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. The scholarship, valued at approximately $34,000, covers: tuition costs, required textbooks and software.
"We're very excited to offer this scholarship program to members of the Army National Guard in honor of their sacrifice and service to their state and our country," said Thomas M. Macon, chairman of Grantham University.
"We fully support the Army National Guard's education mission to encourage its members to pursue higher education. Grantham's goal is to benefit soldiers and their families by providing the opportunity to further their education at no cost to the service member."
Additionally, Grantham University offers scholarships for active duty, reserve, guard, veterans and military family members as well as scholarships for law enforcement personnel. Grantham's Military Scholarship covers the cost of required books, software, and the tuition remaining after Military Tuition Assistance benefits have been applied.
