Operation Education — Providing the Opportunity for a College Degree

Operation Education at the University of California, Riverside, provides assistance to United States military veterans who have sustained a severe and permanent injury while serving our nation since September 11, 2001. Recipients must be UC-eligible. Spouses are also eligible for the program.

Based on a successful program created by Dr. Karen White at the University of Idaho in 2006, Operation Education seeks to support those who have bravely served us by providing them with the means to pursue a college degree and start the next phase of their lives.
