We provide on-going support and counseling services to all families of fallen special operators. Our counselors work with each family to ensure every child has the best possible opportunity to do well in school and graduate from college.
Even though our students have a much higher than average high school and college graduation rates, we are continually working to improve them.
We providing funding for professional tutors to our students throughout the nation. This service is available for any of our students, from kindergarten through college. Additionally, the SOWF offers students access to online SAT/ACT test preparation.
What makes the SOWF different from other scholarship organizations is our pro-active team of counselors who reach out to every one of our scholarship recipients (and future scholarship recipients), stay in touch via emails, phone calls, birthday cards, and invitations to special events.
“Education has been something I have valued since a very young age. While my years at Baylor were some of the most challenging years of my life, I will always value and cherish my experience there. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all SOWF has done for me. SOWF significantly lightened my financial burden which allowed me to focus more on the most important aspects of college.”
