In recognition of the sacrifice of military families, we are proud to offer the following education funding opportunities.


Joining Forces

Career Training Scholarships for Veterans and Military Families 

Joining Forces is a national White House initiative calling on Americans to rally around service members, veterans and their families and support them through wellness, education and employment opportunities. Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, Community Outreach - Career & Professional Education recently joined ed2go, a Cengage company, to fulfill the Joining Forces commitment to provide veterans and military families with workforce training opportunities and resources for securing employment.  We have a strong relationship with the local veteran and military community and offer a variety of programs tailored to military students, making us a strong partner for this program. 

Vice President Joe Biden explained the goal of Joining Forces when he stated, "I have always said we have lots of obligations as a nation – but only one truly sacred moral obligation: to prepare and protect those we send into harm's way, and to give them every bit of care they, and their families, need when they return."
