To help local military veterans prepare for college, Cape Fear Community College will host a new summer veterans institute which starts next month.
This event is a free, one-week program designed to assist veterans in enrolling in, adjusting to, and ultimately meeting their goals at CFCC.
This yearâ€™s program will be held the week of May 13, 2013. Â It will last 4 Â½ days and will end at noon on May 17.
Currently, space is still available for the institute. This year, the college will accept 20 student veterans into the program. but officials hope to expand the program in the future.
“We hope that with the success of the program, we will be able to accommodate more veterans in future years,” Philpott said.
For more information, contact Bob Philpott, Veterans Affairs Coordinator at 362-7106 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
This program is funded by a grant from the Aurora Foundation, a non-profit organization established to help student veterans successfully graduate from college and enter the workforce.
