Spouses & Children of our Fallen Heroes

Fallen Heroes Scholarship Program

Heinz College stands proudly with members of our armed forces and their families. When those who serve lose their lives while serving our country, it is imperative that we collectively support and care for their families.

In addition to policy action that supports veterans and their families, we at Heinz College believe we can go a step further for the surviving spouses/partners and children of our fallen heroes by offering a dedicated scholarship program that invests in them and helps protects America's future.Travis Manion Foundation Logo
