The University of Alabama's online program unveiled this month a grant that will offer financial assistance for students who serve in the Armed Forces.

In a release from the university, a spokesperson said the UA Online Military Tuition Grant "is designed to help remove financial barriers for service members looking to earn a bachelor’s degree."

The grant will cover tuition costs that are not covered by military tuition assistance up to the maximum allowed by the student’s branch of service for six credit hours during the fall, spring and summer terms, up to 18 credit hours per academic year.

The grant is open to active-duty military, National Guard and Reserve service members enrolled in the university's undergraduate distance learning programs.

Dr. Robert Hayes, interim dean of the College of Continuing Studies, said, "by reducing the financial obstacles and resolving the limitations presented by in-residence academic programs, we are able to remove many of the challenges that cost and location present for our military community."
