A grant to brighten up the new year!

The Military and Veteran Resources Program at Oregon State University is a proud recipient of the Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs Campus Veteran Resource Grant.  Oregon State University, along with 13 other universities and community colleges, share in a portion of the $1 million dollar award to help enhance veteran services at public institutions throughout the State of Oregon.

The grant was made possible with the passage of Senate Bill 143 in the 2017 Oregon Legislature.  The Bill is intended to augment existing campus programs that help veterans successfully transition from military service to college life, succeed in college and complete educational goals, and transition from college to the workforce in the community.

The intended use for the funds at Oregon State include the upgrading of the computer workstations that are available for the Military and Veteran Community members while on campus, enhancing the campus orientation program for incoming student veterans, and creating a designated representative focused on the needs of our Ecampus military connected students.
