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.

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.
