Grantham University Goes Extra Mile For Military Veterans
When it comes to serving the troops who serve our country, Grantham University has never been one to fall short -- just a few months ago, the school was named as one of the Top 20 military-friendly schools our country has to offer. Still, this is not a school content to rest on its laurels, and as such has just announced that it will be offering a very enticing "stimulus package": a new Dell laptop for every dedicated active duty and veteran military student in 2009.
Grantham University (www.grantham.edu), an online university serving working adult students around the world, today announced that it is offering its own version of a "stimulus package." The University is offering a new Education Technology Grant for military and veteran students that will provide them with a new Dell laptop computer after they have successfully completed between 12 and 18 semester credit hours. The Education Technology Grant is available to all active duty military, reservists, and national guardsmen, as well as veterans (honorably or medically discharged) of any branch of the United States Armed Services.
"We're very pleased to be offering this grant to our service members," said John LaNear, J.D., Ph.D., president of Grantham University. "Research shows that service members need portable, up-to-date technology to successfully persist in off-duty voluntary education. Many service members find that with a laptop, they can continue their classes while on deployment, during training exercises, or when on temporary duty."
According to school officials, this package (referred to officially as the "Grantham Education Technology Grant") comes on the heels of President Obama's call to action for every U.S. adult citizen to complete at least one year of college or other post-secondary training. Statistics are said to show that, by 2016, 40% of jobs in the country will require a Bachelor degree or higher; thanks to the efforts put forth by schools like Grantham, more and more people will make it there.
