We are very excited to announce today our new partnership with Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), the country’s first and largest nonprofit, nonpartisan organization for veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. As part of our new partnership, we will award 50 scholarships to qualified IAVA Member Veterans, 25 for GMAT prep courses and 25 for graduate school admissions consulting services offered by Veritas Prep. The partnership will help veterans interested in earning a graduate degree become more competitive candidates.
The GMAT Scholarship Program allows winners to take the Veritas Prep GMAT prep course of their choice, either in-person or online. Every winner will receive our full suite of 15 GMAT course books and extensive online resources. The Admissions Consulting Scholarship grants winners six hours of admissions consulting with a Veritas Prep admissions expert per scholarship. Application materials must be submitted by Tuesday, December 27 and winners will be notified by January 9, 2012.
Additionally, we will offer 50% off all GMAT courses and 25% off all admissions consulting services for any qualified IAVA Member Veteran.
