GLM Highlight in Education – Pat Tillman Scholarship Foundation


Pat Tillman Scholarship Foundation was chosen to be honored as one of our GLM Highlights in Education. Founded in 2004, the Pat Tillman Foundation invests in military veterans and their spouses through educational scholarships; building a diverse community of leaders committed to service to others.  The scholars selected for the funding are those who show extraordinary academic and leadership potential, a true sense of vocation, and a deep commitment to create positive change through their work in the fields of medicine, law, business, education and the arts.  The scholarship was named in honor of Pat Tillman, the late all-star NFL player who put his career with the Arizona Cardinals on hold to serve our country after the attacks of 9/11.  After Pat’s death, family and friends started the Pat Tillman Foundation with a $1.25 million pledge to Arizona State University.  The board of directors, led by Marie Tillman, refocused the mission of the foundation to support veterans and spouse through educational scholarships, tools and a support network. Our GLM team salutes their mission to provide our nation’s heroes and their families with funding towards higher education. To learn more about the Pat Tillman Foundation, visit:
