We help. We support. We are women veterans.

Women veterans education has been and continues to be a crucial piece of the transitioning puzzle. The Post-9/11 GI Bill was the largest expansion of educational support to veterans in the history of the United States.

But even with this expansion women veterans are still in need of information to help them choose programs that suit them and to find the appropriate school. Each veteran is different and each woman vet deserves personal attention to their educational needs.

Support for Women Veterans Education

Career counseling and support for women veterans education needs to have easy to implement guidelines that can be used to enhance programs and services for women vets.
