Incubating Math-Veteran Student Success
A Math Success Scholarship program for the veteran student population evolved in working with Maricopa Community Colleges. This program offers opportunities for veteran students to enroll in a Math structured tutor class. Because the course is not GI Bill benefit eligible, it is the veteran students’ responsibility to pay the tuition if they wish to register for this class. Implementing the Math Success Scholarship program, S.E.E.4Vets would pay the tuition with the understanding that the veteran students must academically perform at B grade or better. Community colleges in other Arizona counties are providing tutors in math and English, paid for by S.E.E.4VETS,to student veterans as a way to strength those academic skills.
Veterans Upward Bound Program (VUB)
Yavapai Community College, in Prescott, is one of two higher learning institutions in the State of Arizona offering a VUB program. The program provides eligible U.S. military veterans with the opportunity to refresh their academic skills and obtain the support needed to prepare them to successfully enter and graduate from college. Criteria for Initial S.E.E. 4 Vets Scholarship:
Veteran Student Networking Success
One program of work is veteran students connecting with employers. The goal is to provide opportunities for veteran students to engage with local employers, and for employers to develop a greater understanding of the culture, talents and skills of the student veterans. We want to encourage employers to network with students, share information about their industries and potential employment opportunities, including internships and mentoring at their place of business.
The success of our 2017 Fourth Annual Golf tournaments, both west and east valley, enable us to further improve these tournaments at the TPC Scottsdale, Stadium Course and The Wigwam Golf Course. Equally important, proceeds from these wonderful events fund S.E.E.4Vets Student Veterans Success programs at Arizona Community Colleges.
- Our east valley Fifth Annual Golf Tournament will be held Friday, May 18, 2018. See Special Events navigation tab.
- The Wigwam golf tournament will be held Friday, November 16, 2018.
Previous year financial data and information appears on the website as a sub-heading, 2017 Performance. To date, the organization leadership is working on soliciting corporate sponsors and scheduling fundraising events throughout the State of Arizona.
Return on Investment
An important element for success will be careful analysis of the effectiveness of its initiatives, oversight and metrics to determine the impact on student veteran academic program completion, and effects on quality of campus life. In addition, S.E.E.4Vets is financially supporting structured tutoring-type programs, performance-based scholarships, and supporting the improvement/expansion of veteran services centers across Arizona Community Colleges.
