Military-Friendly Resources

Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College is committed to supporting our military personnel. SMWC was one of twenty-one institutions of higher education in Indiana which received grants for the development of support programs and services for student service members and veterans. The grants were awarded through Operation Diploma, an initiative of the Military Family Research Institution through a $5.8 million gift from the Lilly Foundation. In addition, we participate in a variety of military friendly programs and the College has approved several scholarship programs through outside sources that benefit military personnel as well as their spouses.
