With your support, we have touched the lives of 20,000 veterans who have returned to colleges and universities across the United States and funded nearly three dozen internships.  We are seeing the retention rates improve, though this is a slow and somewhat ambiguous metric to track.  As we work more with those who have received grants from Aurora, both in academia and industry, we continue to support our veterans’ return home, joining them in the journey from “boots to books to business.”

Green Zone Webinar - Lessons Learned

On January 30th, Aurora hosted a webinar attended by over 20 people representing nine different schools and one corporate organization.  Representatives from CACI, Virginia Commonwealth University, Tidewater Community College, and Mississippi State University (all Aurora Partners and / or Green Zone Grant Recipients) discussed with the group how they implemented faculty training within their organization.  The Executive Summary of the Webinar can be found here.

For the Common Good

In an effort to share grant ideas that have been used to meet different campus’ needs, please explore the links below to some of our schools who've received grants in the past.  Aurora also partners with non-profit organizations such as Operation College Promise and the Virginia Wounded Warrior Program to better meet the needs of student veterans on campus.
