For military veterans, the transition to civilian life is often filled with difficulty. According to the Postsecondary National Policy Institute:

  • Student veterans are less likely than non-veteran students to invest time outside of the classroom on activities not essential to the completion of their course as a result of parenting responsibilities, work, and other factors.
  • Student veterans report difficulties transitioning from a military style of technical learning and a hierarchical organizational structure to a university learning environment.
  • Military service members and veterans relocate often due to service, and these frequent moves make it challenging for veterans to establish residency in any one state for purposes of qualifying for in-state tuition rates at public institutions.
  • Student veterans frequently face mental health challenges.

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:

  • Copy of DD214
  • VA Benefit Summary Letter (If Applicable)

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.
