For military veterans, the transition to civilian life is often filled with difficulty. According to the Postsecondary National Policy Institute:
The Praccess Veterans Education Grant is designed to help California veterans transition from military to civilian life by reducing the obstacles to obtaining and benefiting from a post-secondary education.
To apply, you must be a resident of California, with preference for students in Southern California. You must write a personal statement about your military experience, your proudest moments, and any significant obstacles you've faced.
Please also include the following via a link:
Special consideration shall be given to students with a service-connected disability, victims of military sexual trauma, combat veterans, and veterans who are experiencing housing insecurity.
Please make sure you have a profile picture.
Describe your military experience (e.g. branch of service, MOS, awards, deployments, special assignments) and your proudest moment. Describe the most significant obstacles(s) to your educational and/or professional success and how can this grant help support your goals. Use this as an opportunity to tell a broader story and enhance the committee's understanding of who you are and what makes you stand out.
