military friendlyLynchburg College is on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools compiled by G.I. Jobs. The list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities, and trade schools which are doing the most to embrace America’s veterans as students.

In 2009, Lynchburg College created a Veterans Award, in conjunction with the Post 9/11 GI Bill, to enable all veterans who meet College admissions requirements to attend tuition-free.

LC alumnus Dr. John D. Bower ’57 created a Veterans Scholarship Fund and challenge grants to establish the Dr. John D. Bower ’57 Veterans Center in the renovated student center, scheduled for opening in fall 2014.

The 1,739 schools on the list range from state universities and private colleges to community colleges and trade schools. The common bond is their shared priority of recruiting students with military experience. These schools offer scholarships and discounts, veterans’ clubs, full-time staff, military credit and other services to those who served.

Now in its fourth year, the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools ® was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 VA-approved schools nationwide.

A full story and detailed list of 2013 Military Friendly Schools ® will be highlighted in the annual G.I. Jobs Guide to Military Friendly Schools ®, distributed in print and digital format to hundreds of thousands of active and former military personnel in early October.
