AMU’s Brand-New Grant 

We are excited to introduce a new initiative from American Military University (AMU)– the Everyday Heroes Grant.

This unique grant is aimed at recognizing and rewarding the unwavering commitment and dedication of our emergency services professionals. AMU understands the sacrifices made by those in public safety, EMS, police, and fire services, and we believe it is our duty to give back. That’s why we’ve created a tuition grant of 10% that these extraordinary individuals – and their families – may be eligible for.1

At AMU, we are steadfast in our commitment to making education accessible and affordable. With this grant, we aim to further ease the financial burden associated with higher education and provide a pathway for Everyday Heroes to advance their skills or pursue new learning avenues.
