Fort Detrick Soldiers

Hood College honors the full GoArmyEd tuition benefit for all soliders stationed at Ft. Detrick interested in a master's degree and/or post-baccaluareate certificate.

Interested in furthering your education?

Take advantage of the new Fort Detrick-Hood College educational partnership, which provides scholarships for master's degrees to active duty military stationed at Fort Detrick. This new scholarship program honors the full GoArmyEd tuition benefit, so soldiers only pay for their one-time application fee ($50), textbooks and the annual campus fee ($125). 

All masters-level tuition is covered under this new program, which applies to ~20 master's programs in a variety of fields, like education, biomedical science, bioinformatics, cybersecurity, business, mental-health counseling and beyond! Peruse a list of Hood College graduate programs (degrees and certificates).

Learn more about this new educational benefit and Hood master's degrees, which can help you to "Go further in your life, your career and community." Meet with current soldiers in Hood College's graduate programs in the ACES office on base Wednesdays, 0800-0930. No appointment is necessary.
