Warrior Foundation Scholarship Program
"Commanders emphasize mission readiness is enhanced, because Special Operations Forces know their families will be taken care of."
The Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides family assistance to the children and spouses of fallen warriors from the time they join the SOWF family.
The Family Services Program offers educational, behavioral and emotional support services through various avenues each year. TheScholarship Program begins generally during the junior year of high school with college planning, academic and financial aid counseling. Applications are mailed to eligible seniors in the fall of each year.
SOWF provides for, or identifies funding for, the full cost of a public college education: tuition, fees, room, board, books, and supplies.
Scholarships offered are grants, not loans, and can be used in private universities, state or community colleges, and vocational-technical training and career institutions. The foundation assists Special Operations Forces (SOF) families in furthering their children's education as well.
Financial ad and family resource information is distributed to over 300 Special Operations units (some 60,000 active duty, Guard and Reserve Special Operations personnel located throughout the world) via the Warrior Link newsletter.
