    NORTHFIELD — Norwich University has committed about $150,000 to tuition scholarships for military students so they can continue to study even though their financial aid has been cut off by the federal government shutdown.

    In a news release Tuesday, the school said 146 students will continue to be enrolled despite the suspension of their financial aid through the military tuition assistance program administered by the federal government.

    The students are in the U.S. military while enrolled online in two bachelor’s degree programs: the Bachelor of Science in criminal justice and the Bachelor of Science in strategic studies and defense analysis, as well as online master’s degree programs.

    “Keeping these men and women in class, advancing their education and leadership skills this semester, is of the upmost importance,” said the dean of the College of Graduate and Continuing Studies, William Clements, in the release. “Norwich University will step up to financially support these students who have made the ultimate commitment to serve our country.”
