ARLINGTON, Virginia, May 16, 2003

To better serve the educational needs of U.S. military personnel and veterans, UMT has launched a Military Scholarship program.

Dr. Yanping Chen, President of the University, said, "Our armed forces, more than anyone else, need high quality distance education programs. This is because the uniqueness of military jobs requires the education programs to be mobile and flexible enough to support the students' performance in their military duties. To attend traditional face-to-face university classes can be difficult and expensive for military students. UMT's high quality distance education programs are sharpened by our global and corporate education experience. We are ready to offer the same high quality programs to our armed forces."

UMT's Military Tuition Scholarship reduces the tuition from $390/credit-hour to $250/credit-hour. UMT is affiliated with DANTES and is approved for Veterans Administration G.I. Bill Education Benefits.

Dr. C. Eric Kirkland, Vice President of the University, is excited to announce, "The UMT Board of Trustees has decided to offer a substantial tuition and fees scholarship, plus a book scholarship, to all active duty and selected reserve personnel. With these scholarships, military students will be able to receive a high quality education without incurring any out-of-pocket expense!"

"We are excited about the opportunity to offer quality education to our military personnel." Dr. J. Davidson Frame, Academic Dean of the University said, "UMT education programs can provide our military personnel cutting-edge knowledge in management and technology to enhance their jobs performance and prepare them to return to civilian life in the future. Our master's degrees in Project Management, Acquisition Management, and Computer Science and Information Technology are ideal for military students."

UMT also offers an Executive Certificate and a Graduate Certificate in Project Management. These certificate programs dovetail with the master's degree, providing important milestones toward the degree that are nationally recognized.

Dr. Frame noted, "The Executive Certificate prepares a person to become a Project Management Professional (PMP). The PMP qualification is recognized throughout the world as a hallmark of excellence in project management."
