“I think this program and the way it is set up is a wonderful additional to the University community,” says Pickar. “It takes the stress out of dealing with a disability and trying to go to school while maintaining financial obligations.”

Supporting Spouses

Melissa knew she needed to go back to school to provide for her family. Her father was an attorney and she wanted to follow in his footsteps.

A Saving Grace

“Operation Education has single-handedly saved me,” says Olson. “I literally was down to the last $12 in the bank; I couldn’t buy books. Operation Education gave me some money to put on my Vandal Card to buy books. It was the helping hand I needed.”

A Web of Support

"Operation Education is more than a scholarship - it's a support web. I can go out there and take risks, and it's going to be okay. I can focus on my education and not worry about how it's going to happen."
