The University of Dubuque has received two $1000 American Legion of Iowa Foundation scholarships to support veterans and their family members working to complete their education. The grant recognizes veterans and their family members as American Legion of Iowa Foundation scholarship recipients and provides additional support to cover the costs of higher education not covered by the GI Bill.
The University of Dubuque’s Sergeant Jeffrey B. Dodge Veterans Center was created in spring 2014 to invest in the lives of students at the University who are veterans of the military. The center is committed to providing student veterans a seamless transition from military life to civilian college life. A college campus is an unfamiliar place to many student veterans, and reaching their full potential can only be realized with care, support, and access to education.
The American Legion of Iowa Foundation Scholarships will recognize students for their academic achievement and reward them for their dedication to their country and commitment to higher education.
