Military Wife Educational Scholarship Program announced

Operation Homefront and Women’s Self Worth Foundation

SAN ANTONIO — Operation Homefront and the Women’s Self Worth Foundation announced they are accepting applications for the 2012 Saban Military Wife Educational Scholarship.

This scholarship program is funded by a $250,000 grant by WSWF and is aimed at wives of uniformed service members, so they can attend vocational training programs in the medical field.

This year’s grant funds eight $8,500 scholarships and two $10,000 scholarships, which will be awarded for tuition for vocational training in one of the following fields: dental assistant, medical assistant, medical billing and coding specialist, medical insurance technician, patient care assistant/technician, nurse assistant training program, or medical transcription. One $30,000 scholarship will be awarded for tuition in a vocational nursing program.

Applications will be accepted through June 1. The scholarships will be awarded to recipients in July.

Selection for the scholarships will be made by a panel of judges, and the award will be scored in two areas: the applicant’s response to the essay question and her commitment to volunteerism.

Detailed information on eligibility and application requirements is available at www.OperationHome front.net/scholarship.
