Central Michigan University is offering grants to military personnel approaching graduation who face aid losses because of federal budget cuts.

The Mount Pleasant-based school said Tuesday that the grants are meant to offset the federal government's suspension of tuition assistance to members of the military.

The grants are available to students holding an E7 rank or below with a semester remaining on graduate or undergraduate degrees.

Central Michigan's Global Campus offers bachelor, master and doctoral degrees along with professional development courses. Programs are offered online and at more than 50 locations, including 20 military bases.

The Army, Air Force and Marine Corps have suspended tuition assistance programs for active-duty, reserve or National Guard service members because of automatic federal spending cuts that went into effect March 1.
