Grace College Named ‘Military Friendly School’
For the second year in a row Grace College and Theological Seminary in Winona Lake, Ind., has been named a Military Friendly School by G.I. Jobs magazine. The list of named schools is a product of years of research across government agencies and private entities, as well as a survey administered by G.I. Jobs. The 2012 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members and veterans as students.
The 1,518 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list prioritize the recruitment of students with military experience. These schools are making the grade by offering scholarships and discounts, veterans’ clubs, full-time staff, military credit and other services to those who served. The 2012 list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through extensive research and a data driven survey of more than 8,000 schools nationwide. Methodology, criteria and weighting for the list were developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Board (AAB) consisting of educators from schools across the country.
