A total of $1 million in Veteran Reconnect Grants will be distributed to universities, community colleges, and colleges of applied technology (TCATs) to support programs and services for student veterans.

The grants were included in Governor Bill Lee’s proposed budget and approved by the Tennessee General Assembly earlier this year.

“Tennessee continues to make veteran access to higher education a priority through this program as well as numerous other initiatives,” THEC Executive Director Mike Krause said. “These institutions are highly focused and helping our state become a national leader in this arena.”

2019 Veteran Reconnect Grant Recipients:

  • Austin Peay State University
  • Dyersburg State Community College
  • Lipscomb University
  • Middle Tennessee State University
  • Southwest Tennessee Community College and Tennessee College of Applied Technology- Memphis (Collaborative Partnership)
  • Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology at Harriman, Jacksboro, Oneida/Huntsville, and Knoxville (Collaborative Partnership)
  • Tusculum University 
  • University of Tennessee at Chattanooga
  • University of Tennessee at Martin

THEC utilized a competitive Request for Proposals which required applicants to submit plans supporting a student veteran’s higher education experience. Program options included strategies for the transition from the military into higher education, academic success in pursuing a degree, and preparation for entry into the civilian workforce.

Since funding began in 2015, THEC’s Veteran Reconnect Grants have supported a variety of projects such as hiring veteran resource officers, and establishing professional development programs and campus veteran service centers for student veterans.
