Pat Tillman Foundation
Building the next generation of leaders by uniting and empowering military veterans and spouses.
Our mission is to unite and empower remarkable military veterans and spouses as the next generation of public and private sector leaders committed to service beyond self.
Through the Tillman Scholars program, we are building the leading fellowship program for military veterans and spouses. The program supports active-duty service members, veterans, and their spouses with academic scholarships, a national network, and professional development opportunities, so they are empowered to make an impact at home and around the world. The Tillman Scholars are already making a difference in the fields of medicine, law, business, technology, education, the arts, and more.

THE TILLMAN SCHOLAR PROGRAM
Since its inception, the Tillman Scholar Program has evolved into a world-class community of military service members, veterans, and spouses, accepting 2.5 percent of applicants based exclusively on merit and potential for impact. PTF made a $1.2 million lifetime commitment to the 2019 Class of Tillman Scholars. This year, 60 Tillman Scholars were chosen from a pool of approximately 2,300 applicants.
Tillman Scholars continue to make an impact, solving problems, and discovering solutions that ripple outwards on a local and global scale. Your support makes this possible and so we share this success with you.
