Wyakin Warrior Foundation

The Wyakin Warrior Foundation is a 501 c(3) nonprofit organization providing a full-spectrum education and professional development program for severely wounded, injured, or ill Post 9/11 veterans, designed for collegiate success and resulting in a rewarding career after graduation.  Also known as the Wyakin Wounded Warrior Academy™, the program provides:

  • A full, 60 month scholarship (including room, board, books, tutoring, and living expenses).
  • A custom, one-on-one, multi-layered mentoring program by the nation’s top leaders in business, industry and government service.  Mentorship continues for a full year after graduation.
  • Monthly professional development seminars by business leaders, public officials and employment experts.
  • Lifetime membership in a fraternal organization (the Wyakin Warrior Foundation).
  • A service project, completed while in school, to benefit other wounded warriors.
  • Robust networking to assist them in securing gainful employment after graduation – not just get a job, but get a good job with upward mobility.

Our veterans can attend Boise State University, which has been an enthusiastic supporter of the program, or the College of Western Idaho, a local community college.
