50% off Dental Exam and Cleaning: 


As you may know the University Health Center (UHC) offers primary and specialty health care.  What you may not know is the UHC offers UGA student veterans heavily discounted rates at UHC’s specialty health clinics (e.g. dental, vision, PT etc.) through an initiative called the Healthy-Vet Program.   

Starting this month, student veterans who have paid their health fees (most are paid by the VA’s 9/11 benefit) can get 50% off their dental exams and cleaning.  This program, which was originally offered only in June, is now available year round. 
 

VIP Fellowships with State Department:


Are you finishing up your graduate degree and interested in foreign affairs? Do you want to know what a career is like at the State Department? Consider applying to the Veterans Innovation Partnership (VIP) Fellowship at www.vipfellowship.org. This year-long paid fellowship offers qualified veterans an opportunity to work at the State Department while leveraging your skills and expertise to advance U.S. foreign policy.  
VIP Fellowship applications will be accepted starting on July 5, 2017 for the next cohort through a USAJobs.gov announcement online.  Applicants must have recently graduated from a master’s program by their start date to be eligible for this year-long fellowship.  

For more information about the application process visit www.vipfellowship.org/application-process/ or contact VIPFellowship@state.gov with questions or Christine “CJ” Johnson, VIP participant, at JohnsonCL6@state.gov.

 


Student Veteran Oral History Project and Survey:  


In partnership with the UGA Special Collections Library, the SVRC sponsored a dozen student veteran oral histories last semester.  If you are interested in sharing your story and want it preserved for generations to come, contact the SVRC to arrange an interview.
 
Kate Dahlstrand, one of our graduate student veterans pursuing her Ph.D in History, facilitates the Q&A associated with these oral histories. In addition to this project Kate is also asking women veterans to consider taking a short survey tied to her research.
 

Readiness Program: 


Last year nearly 50% of our undergraduates were involved in one or more of our SVRC readiness-related programs. Though it is summer, these programs continue to run full speed ahead.
 
If you are a returning student and are not already engaged in the readiness program (e.g. resume development and networking) click here to get plugged in. If you are a transitioning student and missed orientation, stop by and get into the rhythm.
