SECURING EDUCATION BENEFITS FOR VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILIES
We tell the stories of our fellow Veterans to elevate issues to the highest levels of government and to raise national awareness. We engage stakeholders at every level in order to secure benefits for Veterans and their families. If you have a story to tell, we would love to hear it.
One of the most common frustrations we hear from Student Veterans is how few college credits schools award based upon the Joint Service Transcript. The Veterans Education Project knows first-hand how hard Servicemembers have worked and believe that it is time for all schools to work with Student Veterans.
The Veterans Education Project has partnered with colleges and universities around the country to begin innovating the way Student Veterans are assessed for program-specific credits.
We know that working one-on-one with schools is not enough, which is precisely why the Veterans Education Project is partnering with leading accreditors nationwide in order to encourage innovation for Student Veterans.
Schools typically lack the necessary training to create a Veteran-friendly culture, diminishing persistence rates and enrollment. The Veterans Education Project has developed a holistic training curriculum for schools that covers everything from Veterans’ benefits to suicide prevention.
We believe in identifying solutions, not problems. At times, hindrances to innovation can be related to policy and legislative hurdles. The Veterans Education Project engages lawmakers and policy-experts to implement fair and equitable changes to the governance of higher education.
What we do
The Veterans Education Project’s mission is to address the current issues facing Student Veterans and Servicemembers.
