Veterans Project

Medals Picture

What do we do?

The Project offers free services to veterans who are undergraduates or thinking of returning to school. If you are a vet thinking about attending any college in the USA, contact us!

How does the program work?

We act like a “personal trainer” to help you enter or re-enter the education system.

Some of the things we can assist with:

  • Making decisions about your education
  • Applying for college
  • Understanding and applying for benefits & financial aid
  • Finding other resources to assist you and your family
  • Understanding the transition to the student role & its effects on your family

How can I participate?

To participate in the study, please contact the Student Veteran Project at 817-272-2165 or 817-272-0452, and to obtain an intake packet. Upon completion of this packet, you will be contacted to complete a needs assessment, where we tailor our assistance to your specific needs.
