HV College Receives A Grant For A Math Program For Veterans

Apr 9, 2016

Two New York congressional representatives have announced a grant for a college’s Veterans Education Program.

Congresswoman Nita Lowey and Congressman Eliot Engel, both Democrats, say a National Science Foundation grant of more than $1.1 million is headed to Mercy College in Westchester County for its “Mathematics Education Intensive Residency Project Focusing on Veterans.” Lowey says the grant will help prepare veterans for the workforce. Dobbs Ferry-based Mercy College is now working to recruit 10 veterans who have strong math backgrounds to qualify for full scholarships in a 14-month master’s degree program, with the intention of assisting 20 veterans in completing the coursework over four years.
