Welcome to Military & Veteran Services 

Welcome and thank you for making the extraordinary decision to serve our country.  Military and Veteran Services (MVS) is the office to go to for any student using an educational benefit that is related to their (or their spouse/parent) military connection.  Students will make the MVS office their first choice in learning about those educational benefits and how to apply them to their college expenses. We are the primary resource within the university community for students using military benefits, information about programs offered, and to learn about opportunities such as the Student Armed Forces Association (SAFA).  The MVS office plays a central role on campus in raising awareness, educating the community and being vigilant about maintaining our status as a Military Friendly Institution.

Boren Scholarships

Boren scholarships are an initiative of the National Security Education Program and are aimed toward highly motivated individuals who wish to work in the federal national security arena after graduation: https://www.borenawards.org/

 

Boren scholarships offer $10,000-$20,000 for U.S. undergraduate and graduate students to study less commonly taught languages in world regions critical to U.S. interests, and underrepresented in study abroad, including Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East.

 

Veterans: Veterans have already demonstrated a commitment to national security and government services. While they cannot apply past service to the post-Boren service requirement, veterans interested in continuing careers in public service (as civilians or active-duty military) are strong candidates.

Gillman Scholarship

Student Veterans are encouraged to apply for the Gillman Scholarship! The Gilman Scholarship helps assist students on Pell Grants to study abroad. 

The scholarship could be particularly relevant to student veterans who are studying a critical need language for US national security (Arabic, Azerbaijani, Bangla, Chinese, Hindi, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Persian, Punjabi, Russian, Swahili, Turkish, and Urdu), as the Gilman awards a supplemental $3,000 for students who will be studying these languages while abroad.
