Falmouth, Mass., November 17, 2015 – The National Graduate School of Quality Management (NGS) President and C.E.O., Dr. Clint Miner, announced today that the Falmouth Rotary has made a donation of $1,000 designated for veteran’s scholarship. “The National Graduate School is pleased to join with the Falmouth Rotary to provide educational programs for our deserving veterans,” stated President Miner.
One of the challenges facing members of the military is how to make a successful transition from military to civilian life. Many of America’s heroes need to return to college to receive the educational background and training to secure jobs in the civilian world that will support their families. Unfortunately, too many cannot afford to attend college because of changes in the VA educational benefits system that do not cover all expenses including books and library research software.
Will Barrett, Chair of the Falmouth Rotary Philanthropy Committee, stated, “The Falmouth Rotary is extremely pleased, as part of the Rotary efforts to support veterans in the community, to make a $1,000 donation to The National Graduate School of Quality Management for veteran scholarships. The National Graduate School of Quality Management has a very good academic program for veterans and many need financial support to complete academic programs to secure meaningful jobs after they leave the military.”
The National Graduate School of Quality Management has had past and present members of the military attend the college since 1993, with many using their military experience combined with their NGS degrees to secure meaningful positions in the private sector.
The scholarships will be awarded to deserving members of the military based upon service record, financial need and academic records.
President Miner stated “We are proud of our veteran scholarship program and are extremely grateful for the generous support of the Falmouth Rotary.”
