Centers of Excellence for Veteran Student Success Program Applications

The Department of Education issued a federal register notice this week inviting applications for the Centers of Excellence for Veteran Student Success Program. The purpose of this program is to encourage institutions of higher education to develop model programs to support veteran student success in postsecondary education by coordinating services to address the academic, financial, physical, and social needs of veteran students. Estimated available funds are $8.4 million with the estimated average size of awards being $525,000 for up to 36 months. Priority is given to projects that establish a center of excellence for veteran student success and development of a plan to sustain the center after the grant period.
