Where to study with a Reaching Those Who Served Scholarship

Our plan was to admit four military veterans in our programs at each of three participating schools. Each of the partner universities is well situated to participate and engage in Reaching Those Who Served activities.

Each site delivers its programs in varying formats. UT Austin offers its program only onsite, UH Mānoa offers a hybrid program with some onsite and some online courses, and the SJSU program is entirely online.

Each of the three sites has completed admission of students. Please contact Dr. Loriene Roy if you have any questions.
