Scholarship Fund

Operation RSF Scholarship Fund

Operation RSF Scholarship Fund (RSF-SF) is 100% funded by donors and does not accept funds from any other entities. The RSF-SF was started to help support students in Graduate and Post-Graduate studies in Kinesiology, Psychology, and the Neurosciences with the desired focus to help the population diagnosed with PTSD and other trauma-related issues. The RSF-SF is an annual scholarship that must be applied to each year and can be re-applied for subsequent years.

Finding scholarships for graduate and post-graduate studies can be difficult and can limit people from following their passions to help a population in need of more brilliant minds. If you are passionate about helping treat individuals who have experienced trauma and are pursuing an academic pathway leading you there, we want to help.



The inaugural year for granting scholarships will be made available for the Fall of 2021. The application will be available on January 1, 2021, with the application and required documents posted on this page as well as being shared through the newsletter.


  • Students currently in, or accepted to, an accredited university for a Graduate or Post-Graduate level degree in Kinesiology, Psychology, or a Neuroscience degree with a desire to work directly with/in support of the population diagnosed with PTSD and other trauma-related issues.

  • Students do not need to be veterans, relatives of veterans, or associated with the military in any way.
