The Schar School of Policy and Government is pleased to offer the ERPi Patriot Scholarship to eligible master’s students and undergraduate students admitted to a Schar degree program. This scholarship supports the academic achievement and professional development of recipients. In addition to providing financial support toward educational expenses, recipients have the opportunity to engage in career supporting activities including internships.
The ERPi Patriot Scholarship is available due to the generous financial support of ERPi, a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business. Chris Jones, President and CEO of ERPi and Schar alumnus, spearheaded the creation of the ERPi Patriot Scholarship.
Scholarship recipients receive $2,500 per semester toward educational expenses, for up to four semesters (for a total of $10,000). Recipients are also eligible to pursue an internship for academic credit and receive a $5,000 internship stipend.
Priority consideration is given to veterans with a service-disability ranking. All veterans admitted to a Schar degree program are eligible to apply. Dependents of service-disabled veterans are also eligible to apply.
Students interested in being considered for this award should fill out the Application for the ERPi Patriot Scholarship and submit the appropriate supplemental materials by the following deadline:
- July 1, 2019 for fall semester consideration
- December 1, 2019 for spring semester consideration
