JU partners with children of veterans group
Jacksonville University is set to become the first partner school for the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation.
The group and the university are scheduled to sign a formal agreement Friday morning at the school's administration building.
As part of the agreement, Jacksonville University will provide a 40 percent undergraduate tuition reduction per academic year for children of deceased veterans who meet the school's admissions requirements and have been accepted for enrollment. A news release says prospective students should have minimum incoming grade point average of at least 3.3, while maintaining a semester GPA of at least 3.0 to remain in the program.
The Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation is a non-profit based in Jacksonville Beach that provides college scholarships and educational counseling to surviving military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty.
