Veterans Student Services

Veterans Day on the Denton Square

College life can be quite different than life in the military. Texas Woman's University is committed to those who have served our country with a dedicated office to guide veterans as they transition from boots to books. If you or someone in your family has served in the military, please contact Amy O'Keefe to receive your personal welcome and guide to relevant resources. 

Scholarship Opportunities

James Ahn Memorial Scholarship

Captain James Ahn, a graduate of UC Riverside and the Claremont McKenna College Army ROTC program, died in 2015 during a parachute training operation while participating with his Special Forces unit in Washington State.

For all of us who knew and loved James, he will never be forgotten. He was the consummate person and professional who was respected by everyone he came in contact with.
In James’ honor, we are sponsoring an annual scholarship of $1,000 to a Special Forces Veteran who is working towards the completion of a higher education degree.
