WOU expands program to Oregon Reservists

The reservists who were denied normal deployment benefits under the obscure Section 12304b of Title 10 of the U.S. Code will be eligible for WOU’s expanded Voyager Award scholarship program. Members of the National Guard or Reserves who are Oregon residents and meet the military service requirements will be eligible to receive up to four years of tuition assistance.

WOU is prepared to support the Oregon Reservist and National Guard service members who were denied benefits as a result of Section 12304b through WOU's Voyager Award. We will maintain our commitment to our veterans and their endeavors to achieve a post-secondary education without a financial burden impeding their academic career. We strive to be the most military-friendly university in Oregon.
