The SUNY Impact Foundation has awarded a grant of $70,400 from the U.S. Ambassador Carl Spielvogel Fund for Veterans to fund an academic support proposal submitted jointly by SUNY Oswego, Jefferson Community College (JCC), SUNY Canton and SUNY Potsdam to strengthen transfer pathways and foster academic success for student veterans.
The grant will span four semesters and include the following:
• A dedicated tutor to work specifically with the student veteran population on each campus to increase their comfort of use of academic support services and assist in their academic adjustment
• JCC will provide space for SUNY Oswego’s veteran and military services coordinator to hold office hours to meet with prospective JCC student veterans and discuss transfer options.
• SUNY Oswego will host prospective JCC student veterans once per semester
• Each college will create materials specifically for student veterans to assist in the transition from military life to an educational institution and from JCC to SUNY Oswego
