Veteran Transition Through Higher Education

Location: National

The multi-year grant to SVA will fund a strategic partnership between BWF and SVA to enhance and accelerate veteran enrollment, continuation, and completion at high-quality institutions of higher education.  Student veterans exhibit higher GPAs and higher continuation and graduation rates than do other students, but colleges and universities tend to perceive this population inaccurately as lower-performing and needier than civilian counterparts.  This partnership will enable SVA to engage with college and university presidents, chancellors, provosts, trustees, and other senior leaders to influence the allocation of resources towards veteran recruitment and enrollment efforts.
