We are excited to announce today, along with the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), that Veritas Prep has awarded American Heroes Scholarships to 50 IAVA Member Veterans. These test preparation and admissions consulting scholarships will allow U.S. Military Veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan to pursue a wide variety of interests including business, environmental science, history, law, medicine, museum studies, nutrition, psychology and public administration.
Of the 50 scholarships awarded, 31 IAVA Member Veterans will receive a free Veritas Prep GMAT prep course, either in-person or online, and Veritas Prep’s full suite of 15 GMAT course books and extensive resources; 19 will receive six hours of graduate school admissions consulting with a Veritas Prep admissions expert related to the graduate program of their choice. In addition to the scholarships announced today, Veritas Prep is extending discounts to all qualified IAVA Member Veterans; offering 50 percent off Veritas Prep GMAT courses and 25 percent off admissions consulting services.
We’ve been impressed by the wide range of career interests demonstrated by the scholarship winners. While we’ve written before about business schools actively recruiting U.S. Military veterans, but the applications we received demonstrated just how much one can do after serving in the armed forces. While there certainly were a lot of applicants targeting MBA programs and law schools, we also heard from young men and women who want to become teachers, scientists, doctors, and civil servants. We are so pleased to be able to help so many of them prepare comeptitive applications to the nation’s top graduate schools!
This morning, as part of the announcement we released the following quote from our own Chad Troutwine:
“Everyone at Veritas Prep feels honored to award the inaugural American Heroes Scholarships to 50 deserving IAVA Member Veterans. It is our privilege to help these exceptional men and women as they begin their journey to earn the professional degree they need to advance in the military or excel in a civilian career,” said Chad Troutwine, co-founder and CEO of Veritas Prep. “The recipients exemplify the diverse career interests of today’s U.S. Military Veterans. Their inspiring stories remind us that military service and graduate education are a potent combination that can lead to success in many fields. We look forward to furthering our partnership with Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America to create life-changing opportunities for service members and veterans.”
We’re so excited to be involved with IAVA and its outstanding Member Veterans. We can’t wait to see where these terrific young men and women go from here!
