A consortium of business school across the country are participating in the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV). The program which was created in 2007 by the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University provides free training and mentorship in small business and entrepreneurship to post-9/11 veterans with disabilities.
Applications are currently being accepted for the 2010 program which starts in June. Veterans do not need a college degree to qualify for the program but they do need to meet the following prerequisites:
- Separation from active duty service after 2001 (or pending separation)
- Service-connected disability rating from the VA
- Strong interest in entrepreneurship and small business ownership and management
The EBV program will be offered this summer at the following business schools:
- Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University
- UCLA’s Anderson School of Management
- Florida State University’s College of Business
- Mays Business School at Texas A&M
- Krannert School of Management at Purdue University
- University of Connecticut’s School of Business
The program is entirely free to veterans – travel, lodging and meals are provided to students accepted for the nine-day residency at EBV universities.
There are a variety of opportunities and benefits available these days to disabled veterans. If you are a disabled veteran who has been denied disability compensation by the VA, contact Veterans Help Group. We can appeal your rating decision and fight for your rights. You are entitled to certain programs and benefits based upon your VA rating decision so contact our veterans disability rights firm today.
