WID Horizons Scholarship
HORIZONS Scholarship encourages national security, defense careers
Through the HORIZONS Scholarship, established in 1988, Women In Defense encourages women to pursue careers related to the national security and defense interests of the United States and to provide development opportunities to women already working in national security and defense fields. The scholarship is designed to provide financial assistance to further educational objectives of women who are U.S. citizens either employed or planning careers in defense or national security areas. (Not law enforcement or criminal justice.) The amount of the scholarships varies each year.
A Selection Commitee, composed of leading WID members, considers applications and makes awards once each year. WID is in a key position to shape the future defense and national security workforce. WID leaders and members encourage the study of professions related to science, technology, education, and math that support national security professionals.
