St. John’s University in New York has opened a new scholarship beginning next fall for children of military officers that it estimates may benefit about 10 percent of its first-year students. 

Sons and daughters of military officers, both active and retired or deceased, will be eligible for the $2,000-per-year St. John’s Service Scholarship Awards, the New York Post reported. Children of police and firefighters nationwide also will be eligible.

The cost for the program at the private Catholic university will be about $600,000 for next year’s freshman class, the Post reported, and will rise to several million when it is fully phased in over the next four years. 

“These new scholarships are in keeping with our nearly 150-year history of service to others,” St. John’s Provost and Chief Enrollment Officer Jorge Rodriguez said, the Post reported. “Given what these outstanding men and women have done for our country, the University finds it fitting to give back to some of our bravest citizens by helping to educate their sons and daughters in the greatest city in the world.”

Tuition at St. John’s campuses in Queens, Staten Island, and Manhattan is $39,640 before any aid or scholarships, the Post reported.
