University of Idaho Operation Education is a leading scholarship and assistance program for disabled military veterans and their families. https://www.uidaho.edu/current-students/operation-education
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 September 11, 2001. Spouses of qualifying veterans also are eligible for the scholarship.
We know that the transition from battlefield to business can be challenging. We are here so that you
and your spouse don't have to face that challenge alone. Let us work with you to achieve success in the
classroom, the community and in society by helping you attain your college degree. Successfully
completing a certification program or degree program, whether it be a bachelors, masters or PhD, can
help jumpstart the next phase of your life.
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.
