FL’s Veterans Affairs Chief says Florida is ready for veterans influx [PDF] - September 4, 2009
Florida is honored to be home to many brave men and women who have proudly served our nation in the Armed Forces and National Guard. Now more then ever, we recognize your contributions – not only to our safety and well being, but also to enriching our communities and bringing much needed talent, skills and experience to our workforce.
It is our goal for Florida to be as veteran friendly as possible. To that end, the Florida Service 2 Scholars initiative was created to welcome you, the returning veteran, to Florida’s institutions of higher learning and help you meet your educational goals as you grow your career and care for your families.
Under the leadership of the Board of Governors and in partnership with the Florida Department of Veterans' Affairs, Florida’s community colleges and other partners, this Web site is designed to showcase the vast curriculums and services available to you under the New GI Bill, also called the Post 9/11 GI Bill. We want to ensure that Florida’s veterans are aware of the available educational opportunities and can easily locate the information needed to pursue them.
Just as every generation of veterans has strengthened our nation through unselfish service, we are confident that this generation of returning veterans will too. As civilians, you will help energize Florida’s workforce in the areas of engineering, math, science, teaching and health care, or as entrepreneurs. Whatever your chosen academic field and career path, you are an essential part of reinvigorating our state’s economy and making our communities stronger.
