Internship Program

BWF partners with, and provides funding to, community and national non-profit programs that provide impactful services to the post-9/11 military and veteran population. BWF emphasizes maintaining expert knowledge of the gaps and challenges for the post-9/11 population, and directing our funding and collaboration towards evidence-based interventions that ensure service members, veterans, families and caregivers will continue to thrive after military service.
