‘Bees to Grads: Higher Education Resources Available


From time to time Seabee Online receives requests for information about scholarships or other educational resources for Seabees. We recently found a website for ‘Bees and their families looking for more information about higher education. Below is information about the site.

The transition from military service to school is no easy task, for student veterans or their families. But with the right guidance, well-placed persistence, and a little know-how, it’s certainly worth the effort.

Veterans going to college for the first time face a wide range of challenges. Before classes begin, there’s pressure to find the right school, navigating the new GI Bill, and making sure all necessary materials have been organized and submitted. After D-Day, there’s fitting in socially, staying afloat financially, and working toward a degree that offers true career potential. Also, students who saw combat might have medical issues to deal with, such as PTSD, or need special accommodations on campus to help with travel to and from the classroom.

To help current (and aspiring) student veterans and their families, this comprehensive guidebook serves two complementary purposes:

1) To address the many challenges that college-bound veterans face daily, including those of a financial, social, academic, medical and geographic nature.

2) To provide valuable information and resources vetted by actual student veterans who have experienced (and overcome) these challenges first-hand.
