VFW-SVA Legislative Fellowship Program Sees First Legislative Victories

National VFW - 8/7/2017

In a major victory for the legislative fellowship program, sponsored and operated by the VFW and Student Veterans of America, two pieces of legislation supported by fellowship research will now soon become law. The program, now entering its fourth year with applications currently being accepted for the 2018 class, brings 10 VFW members who are also attending college into a semester-long program which includes a week in Washington, D.C., where those selected attend the VFW’s National Legislative Conference. Karthik Venkatraj of Colorado wrote about the need for a two-way exchange of leadership between the private sector and VA which became the basis for VA’s new executive fellowship program included in legislation recently passed by Congress. Ryan Taylor of Florida and Rob Janice of Arizona both researched the need for additional GI Bill funding to support veterans pursuing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) degrees. STEM is one of the fastest growing parts of our nation’s economy and research shows that veterans want to be in these fields but STEM degrees usually take longer than 36 months to complete. The landmark Forever GI Bill legislation that cleared Congress this week would give veterans seeking STEM degrees an additional year of Post-9/11 GI Bill eligibility. For more information on the program and to apply for the 2018 class, visit the VFW website.
