How to help support our WKU Military students:

Text Books For Troops

Textbooks For Troops Lending Library

WKU Textbooks For Troops™ (T4T) lending library is one of the LARGEST programs of its kind in the NATION.

Our Textbooks For Troops lending library was created to help students with the high cost of textbooks.  Free books has made the difference in whether a student can attend college or not.  Many of our National Guard and Reserve students are unemployed.  Providing free book loans has been a crucial step in helping students fill a missing financial aid gap.

To visualize your impact... If we receive a gift of $5,000 we can help multiple students in one semester.  In another way, that gift could purchase 55 books, if those books were used for 2 full years (fall to fall) that would have the potential to help a total of 255 students over the life of the books.  Textbooks For Troops really is different than any other program.  The impact is greater than a one-time scholarship going to one student.  WIth this program, one book will help multiple students over time.  

If you have current textbooks you would like to donate to our program, you can drop those off or mail them in.  Secure online donations may be made by clicking the Donate Now button located on this page.


Military students attending college are one of the most financially burdened student populations on campus.  They are raising families, working full time, and attending classes.  Most lack the financial support of their families that traditional students have.  We are seeking groups or organizations that would like to sponsor a scholarship for our deserving veteran and military students. If you would like to establish a scholarship, please contact us: military@wku.edu.

Support our Student Veterans Alliance

Our Student Veterans Alliance works closely with the Office of Military Student Services to ensure our veterans are getting the assistance they need.  They are a crucial network in helping veterans transition from combat to the classroom.  We are looking for sponsors who can assist the club financially.  If you would like to lend financial support, please click the Donate Now button located on this page.  In the text box next to 'Please provide any additional information regarding your gift:', type Student Veterans Alliance.
