Kansas City, MO - March 30, 2009 - Grantham University, www.grantham.edu, an online university specializing in educating working adults, announced that student, Alan Moore, was awarded a $1,000 scholarship to use toward his tuition at Grantham University through the Imagine America Foundation's (IAF) Military Award Program.
"Moore was chosen as a scholarship recipient because of his honorable service to our country and his dedication to furthering his education," said Dr. John LaNear, President of Grantham University.
Moore, a U.S. Army combat veteran with a 30 percent disability rating, suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) stemming from his service as a tank gunner in Baghdad during Operation Iraqi Freedom and in Operation Joint Guardian in Kosovo.
Currently, he is working as a contractor, while pursuing his associate degree in electronics and computer engineering technology. "I chose Grantham because their distance learning programs are flexible, so I can study and submit coursework on my own schedule, which as a contractor is ever changing," said Moore.
Since 2006, Grantham University has supported Imagine America's Military Award Program (MAP), a national aid program that provides a $1,000 career education award to any qualified active duty, reservist, honorably discharged or retired veteran of a United States military service branch for attendance at a participating career college. This year, Grantham University is committed to funding and awarding fifteen $1,000.00 scholarships. For more information, visit: http://www.imagine-america.org.
