The $10,000 scholarship, named for the Navy’s SPY-6 family of radars, offers returning sailors an opportunity to achieve their education goals, equipping them for success in the civilian world. Scholarships are offered exclusively to Navy veterans pursuing a graduate or undergraduate degree at an accredited university. Recipients must demonstrate leadership in their local community.
“I appreciate Raytheon Technologies supporting me through my transition out of the military,” said Ricks, a 2020 scholarship recipient who graduated from Harvard Business School in Boston, Massachusetts, in May 2022.
The former sailor used the SPY-6 scholarship to help pay for his MBA.
“I look at it as a long-term investment that will serve as a foundation for the next chapter of my life,” Ricks said.
And that next chapter has started. After graduating, Ricks relocated with his family from Boston to New York City, New York, where he is a product manager at Capital One.
Here's a look at the two military veterans who have been awarded the SPY-6 scholarship for 2022, and an update on how previous recipients have used the scholarship to find success as civilians.
