Scholarships for Veterans and Military-Connected Students

The Craig Newmark Veterans Scholarship Fund will support scholarships, experiential learning opportunities and community programs in support of military-connected students at the McCourt School of Public Policy.

Student Stories

“As a Ranger, I experienced the reality of war. As a diplomat, I learned that tough negotiation will always outweigh even the slightest cost of war. My time at Georgetown is broadening my horizon and teaching me critical skills to develop well thought-out policy.”

“A lot of people have reached out to me for advice, how to get help, how to seek treatment, what are the stigmas. Far too often, it’s a ‘sit down, shut up and swallow it’ mentality. I tried doing that and it didn’t end very well, so I try to support everybody in the military who seeks mental health.”

“Part of our whole system is community outreach. We realized that we’re dealing with a demographic of people – veterans and military spouses – where service is so ingrained in their DNA that they need to have this as part of any training.”
