TESU: Provident Bank Foundation $10,000 Grant to Support Military and Veteran Portal

A recent study commissioned by the National Association of Veteran-Serving Organizations reported that 48 percent of transitioned service members found their transition to civilian jobs to be more difficult than expected.

The Provident Bank Foundation has awarded a $10,000 grant to the Thomas Edison State University Foundation in support of the University’s Military and Veteran Portal (MVP), and more specifically, it’s Career Enhancement Initiative. The Initiative is intended to connect military and veteran users with career advising and specific job opportunities based on their interests and military training. It is expected to provide successful transitions to post-military careers for nearly 500 veterans who are projected to take part.
