Seven Colleges Share $1.75 Million to Increase College Enrollment, Completion for Veterans

The U.S. Education Department has awarded seven colleges $250,000 each to operate Veterans Upward Bound programs that help veterans develop academic and other skills needed to succeed in post-secondary education.

The primary goal of the program is to increase the rate of enrollment and completion of post-secondary education programs.

"Offering this assistance is our responsibility and our duty to the men and women who served in our nation's military," said U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. "Helping them access college is good for the nation that they will continue to serve as productive and participating members of the civilian community."

The programs will provide academic and personal counseling, mentoring and tutoring, and offer refresher courses for veterans who have not completed high school or who may be high school graduates but delayed the start of their post-secondary education to serve in our nation's military. Veterans Upward Bound programs will also assist veterans in obtaining support from sources such as the Veterans Administration, state agencies, veterans' associations and other groups that aid veterans.
