Corvias Foundation has given scholarships to 18 military spouses pursuing higher education degrees. The recipients are spouses of active-duty service members stationed at a Corvias-supported military installation.
Each spouse receives a one-time $5,000 scholarship. The money can be used for degree-related expenses, such as transportation, childcare, and school fees.
Corvias Foundation – founded by John Picerne – is a private foundation aimed at supporting education for military families.
“Corvias Foundation was founded to support and empower the military family community, which faces significant and unique challenges that arise from the nature of the industry,” said Maria Montalvo , executive director of Corvias. “Military spouses in particular face incredibly high unemployment rates and wage gaps. Frequent moves, deployments, childcare needs and more are obstacles that contribute to their career challenges. We established this scholarship program to combat these hardships and help military spouses earn a degree that will help provide for their families and their own professional future.”
The 2022 recipients are the 16th consecutive class to participate in the program.
