"We do that better than anyone, and we'll use this money in a meaningful way to help more veterans earn a degree and find a fulfilling career." So says the president of Austin Peay State University in Tennessee after the school received a $200,000 grant to help military veterans succeed in their academic careers, the Leaf-Chronicle reports.

The Promoting Access for Veterans' Educational Success (PAVES) project will embed specialized counselors at APSU's Newton Military Family Resource Center, the Austin Peay Center at Fort Campbell, and Clarksville's Tennessee College of Applied Technology.

The counselors will be under the supervision of APSU faculty who are contracted licensed psychologists serving as intervention managers for the project.

"This grant will help so many of our veteran students and give our counseling students an immeasurable, hands-on, real-world learning experience," says APSU associate provost for research and dean of the College of Graduate Studies.

APSU is the state's largest provider of higher education to military-affiliated students, with about 25% of the university's students having a military connection. Read the Entire Article
