EDUCATION & EMPLOYMENT
Veterans looking to continue their education and further their careers have many options for scholarships and financial aid.
Those who have served in the military can apply for scholarships available to first-time enrollees. Scholarships for disabled veterans, members of minority groups, and veterans who served in a specific branch of the armed forces offer additional funding opportunities.
