By Scott Zinn, January 18, 2022
Recently, Green River College was awarded a grant from the U.S. Department of Education. This newly awarded grant will allow Veteran Services to develop model programs and opportunities that will contribute and support Veteran students’ success in postsecondary education by coordinating services to address academic, financial, physical and social needs; increase annual enrollments of Veteran students who receive VA educational benefits; increase year to year persistence; and increase rate of credential completion.
The grant will also improve the College’s ability to orientate Veteran students to campus, build sponsor opportunities with faculty and staff, grow Veteran students’ financial management skills and economic self-sufficiency, maximize credits earned for prior experience, engage Veteran students in campus life, and keep Veteran students on track for their career and educational goals through two new grant-funded positions.
