Boot Campaign, Serket Racing and Kaplan University Join Forces to Launch the “Boots On” Scholarship Program to Support Military Families

Boot Campaign, Serket Racing, and Kaplan University have joined forces on a new “Boots On” Scholarship Program designed to help current or surviving spouses and dependent children of U.S. military service members and veterans reach their higher education goals.

The “Boots On” Scholarship Program will offer up to 150 partial scholarships and three full scholarships to attend Kaplan University (KU). Applications are now being accepted through September 16, 2016. Information on how to apply for the “Boots On” Scholarship Program is available online at: www.bootcampaign.org/KU.

“All too often, the sacrifices our military families make on behalf of our country are overlooked,” says U.S. Marine veteran Mark Llano, owner/driver of Serket Racing and board member of Boot Campaign. “The Boots On scholarships will provide greater access to a flexible, high quality college education to those who love and support our service members.”
Llano’s Florida-based team, Serket Racing, is dedicated to raising awareness and directing support for veterans and their families with every race and every win.

Charged with a like mission, Boot Campaign is a national nonprofit, nonpartisan military charity that promotes patriotism, raises awareness of military issues, and provides vital assistance for our nation’s current and former military heroes and their families.

“Spouses of service members are faced with heavy challenges every day, especially when their spouse is deployed into combat, and all too often their own personal and professional goals are unfortunately put on hold or abandoned,” explains Boot Campaign CEO Robyn Payne. “Boot Campaign is committed to helping our military families, and is grateful to team with Kaplan University and Serket Racing to help spouses and their children keep on track and thrive in their desires to pursue a college degree.”

“Kaplan University is proud that more than 26 percent of our students are active military, veterans or military spouses,” adds KU Vice President Pat Milligan, who oversees Kaplan’s military scholarship programs. “Military spouses also represent one of the most successful groups of students at KU with respect to academic performance so we are thrilled to be able to unite with Boot Campaign and Serket Racing to build on that success.”
