Education and Career Advancement Grants
Each year, Special Ops Survivors awards up to $10,000 in education and career advancement grants to our survivors. The purpose of the grants is to recognize and reward survivors for their strength and resiliency as they further their careers so that they can better care for their families. Since the program’s inception in 2008, we have awarded over $150,000 in grants to help our survivors pursue their dreams in fields such as teaching, nursing, physical therapy, yoga, real estate, counseling and physical training, and much more. Applications open each year in spring, through our Survivors’ Circle, and are awarded the first or second week of June.
