ARLINGTON, VA. — Two United States Navy student veterans will have the opportunity to split $20,000 in scholarship money for their higher education, according to an announcement this week at the Surface Navy Association's 32nd National Symposium in Arlington, Va.
Raytheon and Student Veterans of America have partnered to offer two Navy veterans $10,000 each in scholarships under the Raytheon SPY-6 Scholarship, a $5 million, multi-year program named for the U.S. Navy's SPY-6 family of radars. Organizers said the scholarship provides returning sailors an opportunity to achieve educational goals and position themselves for success in civilian professions.
"Investment in our student veterans — the future leaders of our industry — provides opportunity to gain unique experience, product knowledge and customer-centric insights that protect our service men and women around the world," said Paul Ferraro, vice president of Raytheon's Seapower Capability Systems business. "Our SPY-6 scholarship rewards Navy student veterans who exhibit superior academic achievement and are leaders on campus and in their communities."
