A performance-oriented organization, Support Education and Employment for Vets (S.E.E.4VETS), funds specific programs at community colleges, creating a climate of success and recognition. One such program is veteran-centric tutoring in math & English, which gives student veterans critical tools to improve their studies. Equally important, we are making a difference in the lives of student veterans as we strive to minimize academic and non-academic barriers through bridge-funding solutions, such as scholarships.
A community college that operates a federally fund Veteran Upward Bound (VUB) project in the state of Nevada is Truckee Meadows Community College (TMCC) in Reno.S.E.E.4VETS has disbursed $11,000 to the college and they have awarded 45 scholarships since 2018. Following is what one veteran said about receiving the S.E.E.4VETS scholarship.
“…I am so grateful for this scholarship and your support. As a new veteran and new mother who works and goes to school, this scholarship is of tremendous assistance to me in helping to achieve my goals. It will ease the financial burden that going to school can sometimes have, and I am eternally grateful for the help...” Kaley Buckley, USMC, Truckee Meadows Community College.
