Thanks to a recent donation from S.E.E.4Vets, a new scholarship opportunity is now available for veteran students at College of Western Idaho (CWI).
S.E.E.4VETS is a non-profit organization on a mission to accelerate the support of men and women who have served our nation in uniform as productive members of the civilian community, including the pursuit of academic or certification goals and greater opportunity to succeed and advance in the workplace. S.E.E.4VETS collaborates with community colleges, like CWI, to shape an implement programs to inspire student veterans to “persist and advance” in their school work.
S.E.E.4VETS’ generous donation will fund up to six, $1,680, scholarships available to eligible veteran students at the College.
“This scholarship can have a profound positive impact on the success rate of veteran students,” said Dallas Hulsey, Senior Coordinator of Veteran Services at the College. “The veterans who receive this scholarship will be able to focus more on school knowing that, because of the combination of the GI Bill® and scholarships, they will not need to work as much to take care of their needs.”
“S.E.E.4VETS is grateful that our men and women in uniform serve our nation in the name of democracy and freedom,” said Ray Torres, S.E.E.4VETS Chairman of the Board. “Our moral obligation extends to veterans, as well and their educational pursuit. SEE4VETS is honored to offer these funds to College of Western Idaho. The more veterans we assist with scholarships, the stronger the meaning of ‘Thank You for Your Service’.”
Thank you to S.E.E.4VETS for your support and contributions to CWI and our students. Your generosity empowers lives by helping students’ dreams become a reality.
Scholarships are now open for the 2022-2023 academic year. Scholarship applications will be accepted through Nov. 15, 2022.
