The Wyakin program application process is open to post-9/11 veterans who are currently enrolled or planning to enroll in a certificate- or degree-earning academic program, with a priority placed on those with service connected disabilities. Application decisions are made not upon prior academic standing or background, but rather upon character, motivation, need, and maturity. If you meet these criteria, we encourage you to apply.
Our program is designed to support veterans who are committed to a successful transition into civilian careers through education. We hold our Warriors to very high standards, and likewise take our obligations to them very seriously. We currently have Warriors seeking Professional Certifications, two- and four-year degrees, and graduate degrees. We are primarily focused on supporting applicants that live or will relocate to the Boise, ID area.
We accept up to 20 new Warriors per year. Applications are reviewed in the order received, with additional applications considered thereafter if available spots remain. Purple Heart Medal recipients are eligible to apply.
The application should take about 15-20 minutes to complete. You will also be asked to provide a copy of your DD-214.
