TAPS Education Care Package

TAPS Education Support Services is excited to open the application sign up to receive an Education Care Package for incoming and current college freshmen. These care packages are for surviving children and siblings headed off to college or enrolled as current college freshman.

Every care package includes a variety of items for young adults, including a TAPS Education Resource Report — a personalized document with information on the federal, state, and private education benefits and scholarships the survivor may be eligible for, information about on-campus support available at the survivor’s university or college, information on the school certifying official, and other programs for which he or she may qualify for. Also included in the care package are a variety of fun and useful items to help the student get started at college while honoring his or her loved one.  

Fill out the form below to request your TAPS Education Care Package.  

Please note, that if a student is entering college as a freshman in the fall semester of the current year and attending the TAPS National Military Survivor Seminar as a Good Grief Camp attendee, those care packages will be disbursed at our seminar rather than mailed.

If you have any questions about eligibility please email Education@taps.org or call 800-959-8277.
