The Division of Continuing Education accepts donations in support of tuition grants and aid for veterans and the under-employed seeking professional development so that they can transition to civilian life or enhance their career opportunities. Your contributions not only help veterans pay for tuition that their benefits don’t cover but also give qualified under-employed individuals a leg up in their career.
