Columbia University School of General Studies and Moody's Partnership Offer Financial Support and Drive Positive Outcomes for Student Veterans
In 2015 the School of General Studies partnered with the Moody's Corporation to create the Moody’s Veteran Program, an initiative designed to improve opportunities for veterans and ease their transition into the workforce. Through the partnership, qualified veteran students at the School are awarded scholarships and provided mentorship, internship opportunities, and other career-related guidance that can positively impact their journey beyond the military.
GS student Rachel Ballew is no stranger to manual labor or arduous conditions, having served in the U.S. Marine Corps for nearly ten years. Last spring, a GS alumnus told her about a water infrastructure project in Morocco whose mission was to provide a sustainable, accessible water source for remote areas. Ballew immediately wanted to learn more.
