Am I eligible for Fry Scholarship benefits?

You may be eligible for Fry Scholarship benefits if you're the child or surviving spouse of:

A) A member of the Armed Forces who died in the line of duty while serving on active duty on or after September 11, 2001, or

C) If you turn 18 or graduate from high school after January 1, 2013, you can get a Fry Scholarship at any age over 18 or after you graduate (whichever comes first).

D) If your parent was a member of the Selected Reserve and died from a service-connected disability while not on active duty, you can get a Fry Scholarship at any time, no matter how old you are.

E) If your parent died in the line of duty before August 1, 2011, you may qualify for both the Fry Scholarship and the Survivors' and Dependents' Educational Assistance (DEA) program. But you can use only one program at a time. We cap combined benefits at 81 months of full-time training.
