Raytheon gives Cameron University grant for Military Spouse Program
LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) - Raytheon Missiles & Defense has given Cameron University a $10,000 grant to launch a new Military Spouse Program.
Raytheon Missiles & Defense is a business of Raytheon Technologies.
The program would offer aid to military spouses going to college. They do not have to be going to school full-time in order to be eligible. Those scholarships will be available starting for the 2021 to 2022 school year.
Those who take part in the program will get a $1,000 scholarship to help offset the cost of tuition and mandatory fees for one three-hour class. Officials say remaining funds can be used on books, academic service fees or childcare.
Scholarship recipients will also be paired with a mentor from the USO Transitions Program team for support.
Applications for the Raytheon Technologies Military Spouse Scholarship are now being accepted and can be found online here.
