WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) applauded the news that the U.S. Department of Education will award Truckee Meadows Community College with more than $430,000 in federal grant funding for its Veterans Upward Bound Program. This program is designed to prepare, motivate, and assist military veterans in their pursuit of postsecondary higher education.
“Our veterans deserve every opportunity to access quality higher education that helps them transition back to civilian life,” said Senator Rosen. “This grant from the U.S. Department of Education will support Truckee Meadows Community College in their efforts to assist veterans in continuing their postsecondary education.”
Senator Rosen has been a champion for improving quality of life for Nevada’s veterans. She has introduced numerous bipartisan bills to help veterans succeed in their transition to civilian life, including legislation to help veterans start small businesses in underserved communities by creating a small business startup tax credit and to establish and improve Student Veterans Centers at colleges and universities.
