Free tuition offered.
Launched earlier this year, Project Hero was co-founded by retired Gen. Rick Hillier and Honorary LCol. Kevin Reed to provide assistance to the families of fallen soldiers. The scholarships are also being offered by Memorial University in Newfoundland, the University of Ottawa, the University of Windsor and the University of Calgary.
Project Hero scholarships are open to those under 26 years of age and requires students to identify themselves as a son or daughter of a Canadian soldier killed in active duty.
