Kutztown University Announces Partnership with Folds of Honor

Kutztown University, who was recently named a 2022 Best For Vets: College by Military Times for the eighth consecutive year, provides a wide range of services to the university's active veterans community as part of its commitment to welcoming and supporting military students. The university's partnership with Folds of Honor Foundation, an organization that provides life-changing academic scholarships to the spouses and children of fallen or disabled U.S. service members and first responders, extends this commitment and acknowledges the sacrifice of our Nation's heroes. The university held a formal signing ceremony Thursday, Nov. 10. Through this partnership, Kutztown University is matching up to $2,000 of the scholarship awarded through Folds of Honor to students of disabled or fallen military service members and first responders. During the fall semester of the 2023 calendar year, this program will support up to five students with the intention of increasing scholarship opportunities for additional students through the support of university benefactors.
