MONTPELIER — Vermont’s Norwich University is promising about $150,000 in scholarships for military students affected by the federal government shutdown.
Officials at the Northfield college say 146 students will be able to continue their education despite the suspension of financial aid through the military tuition assistance program administered by the federal government.
The students in Norwich’s fall semester in bachelor’s degree completion programs and graduate programs are in the United States military while enrolled in online programs.
Norwich Dean William Clements says that keeping the men and women in class is of the utmost importance.
