American Military University Supports Veteran-Owned Small Businesses

American Military University Supports Veteran-Owned Small Businesses

Small Business Owners, their Employees, and All Employees' Family Members Can Achieve their Higher Education Goals with an Alliance Grant

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va., Nov. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- With the backdrop of Small Business Saturday on Nov. 25, American Military University is proud to offer education grants to veteran-owned small businesses, plus their employees and their employees' families. The newly created alliance program gives a 10-percent grant on undergraduate and master's level programs at AMU1.

"We are proud to support entrepreneurial veterans and recognize the educational needs of their employees and families are key to the overall success and vitality of their businesses," said APUS Provost Dr. Elizabeth Johnson. "We are honored to help prepare these underserved populations for their next chapter."

The Alliance Grant can be used for any of AMU's numerous programs at the undergraduate and master's levels. The program is ongoing validation of AMU's strong commitment to veterans and those currently serving in the armed forces.

Veterans make up a significant portion of business owners – including small businesses. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, veteran-owned businesses represent 5.9% of all companies in the United States. This translates to more than 335,000 veterans who own businesses, and they employ close to 3.9 million employees.

Since it was founded 32 years ago by a visionary retired U.S. Marine Corps Officer, AMU has focused on providing affordable, quality higher education to veterans and active-duty military.  

AMU has a dedicated student services team that helps throughout the entire educational journey. The team provides support with admissions, career services, financial aid, and helps students access the University's range of resources.

AMU is proud to continue its legacy of serving the brave, and supporting these business owners, their employees, and families exemplifies this ongoing commitment.
