The partnership offers scholarships for Fallen Patriots full-time undergraduate students studying at Webster in St. Louis, and military tuition rates to Fallen Patriots-eligible grad students at any U.S. campus.

The Office of Military Affairs announced a partnership this spring with the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation (Fallen Patriots) that provides tuition assistance to eligible students who attend Webster University. Fallen Patriots assists military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty.

The partnership with Webster creates a $5,000 annual incentive fund to be competitively awarded to each Fallen Patriots-eligible undergraduate student who attends Webster University’s home campus in St. Louis as a full-time student. Additionally, any Fallen Patriots graduate student who enrolls at any Webster University campus in the United States will receive the same tuition rates as active-duty, guard and reserve members.

Fallen Patriots John Coogan and Eirc Heineman visited Webster last month to tour campus and conduct the signing ceremony for the partnership.

“We are delighted to form this partnership, as Fallen Patriots’ efforts fit perfectly with Webster’s vision, mission and values,” said Julian Schuster, provost, senior vice president and chief operating officer of Webster University.

“The Fallen Patriots’ mission and commitment to our military runs parallel to Webster University’s actions to support our military and their educational needs,” said Brig. Gen. Mike Callan, USAF (Ret.), associate vice president and head of the OMA.

Fallen Patriots’ mission is to provide college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty. They are dedicated to serving the families of combat casualties and military training accidents as well as other duty-related deaths, cover all branches of the armed forces and cover suicides and illness when the VA rules the death was in the line of duty.

Learn more about this opportunity on the OMA’s CFPA Scholarship page. For eligibility determination or any other questions, contact the Office of Military Affairs.
