Global Impact Award to improve veterans’ higher education

         
When veterans return dwelling, a school level is steadily a super subsequent step for a a hit transition to civilian lifestyles. However school is usually a tricky location for veterans, particularly after they’re juggling lessons with non-public, domestic and monetary pressures. Sadly there’s little or no knowledge about what can lend a hand veterans thrive in class. We need to trade that.

Nowadays, we’re granting a $three.2 million Global Impact Award to the Institute for Veterans and Military Families, Student Veterans of America, the Posse Foundation and Veterans of Foreign Wars to support data analysis of U.S. veterans’ higher education. The study will be made public and answer critical questions:

  • Which colleges are most successful at supporting veterans through to graduation day?
  • What on-campus programs have the biggest impact?
  • How do veterans’ education majors stack up against employment opportunities?

Based on the report, we’ll fund the expansion of the veterans’ programs found to be most effective—whether it’s on-campus child care, access to dedicated mental health services or physical gathering spaces—and will also provide Googler support to make this project a reality.

This award builds on our work to train and mentor student veterans through the Google Veterans Network. We’re proud to serve people who’ve served.
