Argosy University and the Los Angeles Chargers Team Up to Award Scholarships to Military Service Members

Two active duty or veteran service members will be selected for $10,000 scholarships

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 14, 2018 — Argosy University is proud to partner with the Los Angeles Chargers to support continued education for active duty and veteran military service members with the Chargers Boots and Bolts Scholarship program.

The Boots and Bolts Scholarship program will provide two deserving active duty or veteran service members with a $10,000 scholarship each this football season to support their continued education at Argosy University.

Applications are being accepted from September 17, 2018 through October 31, 2018 and may be submitted by an active duty service member or veteran or by an individual who wishes to nominate them. The winning recipients will be awarded their scholarships on the field at the Chargers Salute to Service game on November 18, 2018.

“At Argosy University, we are grateful for the service of our military men and women and we are proud to support their continued education with the Boots and Bolts Scholarship,” said Argosy University Chancellor Dr. Cynthia Baum. “We know that service takes dedication, perseverance and hard work – skills that we look for in students to ensure they make an impact in their communities, their families, and the world.”

“Being that my grandfather is a proud Air Force veteran, the military community has always been very near and dear to our family’s heart,” said Chargers President of Business Operations A.G. Spanos. “Getting involved in programs that assist the brave men and women who so selflessly serve our country is just one of the ways in which we can say thank you. This partnership with Argosy University continues a proud Chargers tradition of supporting our military, this time by providing scholarships for service members to continue their education, and we couldn’t be more excited to get the selection process started.”

About Los Angeles Chargers

For 58 seasons, the Chargers have led the fight to stretch the imagination and give fans the most exciting show in football. Behind the dramatic games, unforgettable highlights, beloved players, groundbreaking performances and one of the best uniforms in the NFL lies an uncompromising drive for success – one rooted in toughness, resilience and old-fashioned hard work. A charter member of the American Football League, the franchise was established in Los Angeles in 1960 and called the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum home during its first year of existence. From 1961 to 2016, the team played in San Diego. Advancing to five of the first six AFL Championship games ever played, the Chargers claimed the 1963 title and later joined the National Football League when the two leagues merged in 1970. Since the merger, the Chargers have gone on to appear in Super Bowl XXIX and have captured an additional 10 division titles. The Chargers were purchased by construction leader and real estate developer Alex G. Spanos in 1984 and have been under the guidance of Spanos’ eldest son Dean, the team’s current Chairman of the Board, since 1994.  Dean Spanos’ sons – A.G. Spanos, President of Business Operations, and John Spanos, President of Football Operations – oversee the day-to-day operations of the franchise. The Chargers returned to Los Angeles in 2017 and will play all home games at StubHub Center while the new L.A. Stadium and Entertainment District at Hollywood Park is constructed.
