Educational Opportunity for Veterans

The University of Connecticut's School of Business is seeking applicants for the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV) program. EBV strives to provide disabled veterans of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars with the abilities, relationships and education to grow their own businesses from the ground up. This fantastic program fosters relationships among veterans, UConn and others to assist participants in EBV with creating and executing a successful plan to start and run their own business.

This program aids veterans in many other ways, including helping them through physical and psychological challenges and social hindrances. Since its inception at UConn in 2010, EBV has had the privilege of working with over 100 veterans, which has been largely beneficial to them, their families and the surrounding communities. You can apply for the EBV program at
