Operation Education

You’ve served us, now let us serve you - with a college degree.

The University of Idaho is an open door and a helping hand for veterans who have been disabled in service to our nation, and/or their spouses. Let us work with you to achieve success in the classroom, on campus, in the community and in society by helping you attain your college degree and start the next phase of your life. 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. 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. Each individualized scholarship provides financial, academic and social support and resources – such as tuition, fees and books, on-campus housing, transportation, medical assistance, child care, adaptive equipment, tutoring and mentorship – for the diverse challenges that accompany returning to civilian life, adjusting to life with a disability and working to earn a college degree. We also work with corporations to offer internships and assist in job placement.
