Winners of Operation Education scholarships were announced on Dec. 4 at a ceremony aboard the USS Midway.

With support from the contest administrator, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers Education Foundation, student winners have been selected based on essays that answer this question: What have you learned from having a family member in the service, and how has this impacted your goals and plans for the future?

A $5,000 Blue Oval Scholarship will be awarded to the first-place winner. Second- and third-place winners will receive a scholarship of $2,500 each, and the remaining 47 winners will receive a scholarship of $1,000 each. The scholarship will be paid directly to the college or university in which the winner is enrolled.

public colleges and universitie Yes No   Although it looks like America may have battered the worst of the depression (let's hope), a lot of states are still reeling from the financial slump and the majority have made large cuts in community service funding—counting higher education. As a consequence, public colleges and universities have greater than before tuition, sense you're probably going to pay additional now.
