The first-of-its-kind Scholarship Program
The University of Idaho wants to do everything we can to assist this special group of veterans and their families. It’s one way we can say thank you for the extraordinary sacrifices they have made for our country.

Doing everything we can includes providing educational opportunities for spouses of qualifying veterans, as well. We realize that in some cases, the spouse will be the person who will be called on to provide financial support for the family.

Our goal is to make Idaho, the West and the world better places in which to think, create, work and live. This is what Operation Education is all about.
