“Hope For The Warriors® is extremely pleased and privileged to honor these four women through our Spouse/Caregiver Scholarship Program,” said Brian Schiller, Senior Director of Career Transition & Education with Hope For The Warriors®. “Recognizing the efforts of those who continue the fight each day, long after their loved one has left the battlefield, speaks to the core of our mission at Hope For The Warriors.”
The Spouse/Caregiver Scholarship Program identifies, recognizes, and rewards spouses and caregivers for their strength, fidelity, and resolve despite adversity. Scholarships aid in continued education at a reputable, accredited university, college, or trade school for spouses/caregivers as they assume critical roles in the financial well-being of their families. The scholarship program is just one part of the Career Transition & Education pillar supported by Hope For The Warriors®.
Hope For The Warriors® Career Transition & Education programs support the career and educational goals of the service member, veteran, and family members. The team works closely with employers to create program opportunities for service members and spouses as they prepare for their transition out of the military. Partnerships with universities are built to meet the needs of today's veteran college student. Program work is completed through intensive multi-day programs, one-day seminars, educational webinars, one-on-one mentoring, and more.
