Pat Tillman Foundation awards 60 scholarships

CHICAGO (AP) — The Pat Tillman Foundation is awarding scholarships to 60 U.S. service members, veterans and military spouses. In recognition of their service and leadership potential, the Tillman Scholars will receive scholarship funding to pursue higher education and continue their service in the fields of health care, business, law, public service, STEM education and overall education, and the humanities. In 2002, Tillman put his NFL career as a safety with the Arizona Cardinals on hold to serve in the U.S. military. Family and friends established the Pat Tillman Foundation following his death in April 2004 while serving with the 75th Ranger Regiment in Afghanistan.
