Our Graduate Degree Scholarship Program
OUR VISIONThe purpose of the Legacy Beyond Valor Graduate Degree Scholarship Program is to help returning Veterans find jobs to support their families while continuing to serve the United States in jobs that improve the U.S. infrastructure.
THE PROBLEMHigher education is at risk in America. Fewer young Americans are interested in attending college, and those who would like to attend find they cannot afford tuition. Yes, Veterans can attend college and universities under the current GI Bill; however, even the GI Bill does not assist with Graduate Degree studies.
We Need to Support Veterans Pursuing Advanced Degrees
Veterans are the future of America, and they need our help to achieve their place in America’s future.
- Advanced Skills. Veterans return home with advanced technical skills learned and perfected during their years of service.
- Characteristics. More important than these skills, they return with personal characteristics any employer would be eager to embrace. These traits include honor, honesty, a team mindset, a strong work ethic, respect, solid decision making and leadership skills, and quick responses.
- Security Clearance. Veterans have already proven themselves worthy of government security clearances making it easier to update.
Veterans make excellent employees, especially for government entities and companies whose contracts with the federal government require employees with security clearances.
