Supporting Military-Connected Students

  • ACE Veterans’ Programs promote access to and success in higher education for the millions of military-connected individuals – active duty personnel, reservists, National Guard members, veterans, and their dependents – who seek to pursue a college education. The initiative is comprised of grant-funded programs seeking to find, develop, and disseminate promising practices in serving military-connected students and promote awareness of this growing population’s needs. These projects continue an ACE tradition of helping to ensure service members, veterans, and their families succeed in higher education.
