Operation Education® is the nation's leading scholarship and assistance program for military veterans with disabilities. It is available to military personnel who sustained permanent disability while serving our nation since Sept. 11, 2001. Spouses of qualifying veterans also are eligible for the scholarship.
Especially in these times, the transition from battlefield to business can be challenging. We are here so that military veterans and their spouses will not have to face that challenge alone. We work with military veterans to achieve success in the classroom, the community and in society by helping them attain a college degree; whether that's a bachelor's, master's or Ph.D., we are can help jumpstart the next phase of their lives.
"Operation Education made my mission to attain my degree a success," said Jason House, 2013 graduate and U.S. Army veteran. "Aside from the monetary benefits, the program put me in touch with other like-minded individuals who experienced the same things I did."
The University of Idaho recognizes that for many veterans with disabilities, returning to a productive and satisfying life is about more than just money. Rather, it is about the need for comprehensive and integrated support. That is why we provide individualized scholarships that address the financial, academic and social challenges that come with reintegrating into civilian life. Our scholarships can assist with tuition, books and fees, on-campus housing, transportation, medical assistance, childcare, adaptive equipment, mentoring and tutoring. We also provide assistance with academic and career planning, networking and internship and job placement.
