Tillman Tuesdays: Tips for Applying to be a Tillman Scholar

Blog, Tillman Tuesdays, Tips for Applying | 02/01/2022

With applications for the 2022 class of Tillman Scholars now open through February 28, we want to help you make the most out of your application! While the process may be arduous, the rewards last a lifetime. As the Pat Tillman Foundation continues to address the leadership gap in our country, it is the passion and tenacity of our growing Tillman Scholar community that offers unique perspectives and creative solutions to overcome seemingly insurmountable issues facing our society and world.

To best prepare you for the journey you will embark on during this application process, we asked some of our Tillman Scholars offer their advice. Check out their words of encouragement and don’t wait to get started. 

Our CEO — and 2011 Tillman Scholar — Dan Futrell expanded on how important authenticity is when we asked him.

Heather King, a 2013 Tillman Scholar, told us about how it’s critical to share how your passion drives you to support change.

Each week, we’ll share more videos, quotes, and other advice from Tillman Scholars on an aspect of the application process. Good luck — and for more resources on applying, visit apply.ptf.org.
