Federal Help for Education: Veterans Upward Bound

safe_imageWest Virginian’s military veterans can benefit from a federally funded program that helps them prepare for an education at universities and other institutes of higher learning.

Veterans Upward Bound offers classes on college preparation. VUB also helps veterans apply for GI Bill benefits and federal financial aid while helping them obtain military transcripts. Participants are also provided with online tutorial programs that allow them to access various lessons at their own pace. All services and materials are free to participants, including a small stipend to offset the cost of transportation to and from Upward Bound classes.
