New Acting School Certifying Official: 

This week Doug Bell accepted a new position on campus and, effective immediately, Audrey Shinner will serve as the Acting School Certifying Official (SCO).
The SCO position is currently being advertised and we look forward to Doug's replacement being hired shortly. 

Scholarship Update:

We’ve received nearly two dozen applications for our SVRC-facilitated community scholarships.  We will board the applications in the coming weeks and notify the recipients by the end of February.    
Meanwhile, the Georgia Association of Veteran Certifying Officials extended the deadline to Feb 10th for their veterans-focused Rick Middleton Scholarship.  To learn more or apply for this $1500 scholarship click here.

Let ALL the Big Dogs Eat Food Scholarships: 

Again this year, we have student veterans who are on Food Scholarships and others who should compete for scholarships, like this, but for a variety of reasons don’t apply. With that said, student veterans are strongly encouraged to apply by clicking here.

The application closes on Monday, February 13, 2017 and award recipients will be notified via email on or by March 22, 2017. Good Luck! 

Georgia Tech Paid Internship Program for Student Veterans in the STEM Fields: 

If you are an undergraduate student veteran pursuing a STEM major then consider a 10-week summer program that is held at Georgia Tech’s Manufacturing Institute.  The program is called Research Experience for Student Veterans in Advanced Manufacturing and Entrepreneurship Program (REVAMP). 

Last year we had one student veteran participate in REVAMP.  The program provides a $5,000 stipend and a $500 payment towards travel for participants.  Click here to learn more or to apply.

NOTE:  The deadline is mid-February of 2017. A minimum GPA of 3.3 on a 4.0 scale is required. Please direct all questions to Dr. Chuck Zhang.

Need a Great Part-time Job with a Fortune 100 Company:

Apple will be at the Career Fair Wednesday recruiting all majors for part time at-home work within their AppleCare Program.  In addition to gaining valuable experience with Apple, you’ll get paid an hourly wage and receive full Apple benefits including medical coverage and tuition reimbursement.  To learn more click here.

The presumption of service connection applies to active duty, reserve and National Guard members who served at Camp Lejeune for a minimum of 30 days (cumulative) between August 1, 1953 and December 31, 1987, and are diagnosed with one of eight diseases.  To learn how you might qualify for a present or future VA Disability tied of one of conditions click here.
