The mission of the Aurora Foundation is to enable veterans to successfully graduate from college and enter the workforce. In support of its mission, Aurora provides funds to universities and colleges for programs that support veteran students and make campuses veteran-friendly. These programs enrich the lives of veterans as they re-integrate into society by contributing to their academicwelfare, educational experience and career placement opportunities.

Top programs for which Aurora provides money include:

  • Faculty awareness training
  • Funding for veteran-specific classes
  • Assistance to create online tools for veteran students

Grant recipients must agree to provide information about their current student veteran retention rates, as this is how we measure the success of our grants. Aurora requests that all grant recipients allow Aurora to share the results.
