Family and friends created the Pat Tillman Foundation in 2004 to honor Pat’s legacy and pay tribute to his commitment to leadership and service. The mission of the Pat Tillman Foundation is to invest in military veterans and their spouses through educational scholarships – building a diverse community of leaders committed to service to others. To date, 290 Tillman Military Scholars representing 34 states and attending 92 academic institutions nationwide have been awarded over $4.1 million in scholarship support.
After an extensive selection process, the Pat Tillman Foundation is proud to welcome the fifth class of Tillman Military Scholars to the Tillman Community. Through the Tillman Military Scholars program, 60 military veterans and spouses representing 42 academic institutions will be awarded nearly $1.4 million in scholarship support in recognition of their service, leadership and academic excellence. Meet the Class of 2013.
The Pat Tillman Foundation thanks all of our 35,000 participants, volunteers and spectators from every state in the nation and around the world who gathered to Run, Walk and Honor Pat’s legacy of leadership, service and action. Proceeds from the race will directly support our Class of 2013 Tillman Military Scholars. For complete race results and photos as well as to purchase official Pat’s Run gear, click here.
As a mother, active-duty Army Sergeant, military spouse and avid marathon runner, Maggie Smith understood the value of patience and perseverance. While on active-duty and raising her daughter, Smith applied to master’s programs to earn her commission as an Army officer after serving in Iraq.
This May, after much dedication, Maggie commissioned and graduated from Georgetown Public Policy Institute with a Master’s of public policy in homeland security. In recognition of her academic excellence, community service and advocacy for cancer awareness, her Georgetown classmates elected her to deliver their commencement address. Congratulations, Maggie!
