Pensacola Grant

For 2014 and 2015 the Pensacola Interstate Fair Inc. has given out around $30,000 towards educational grants. From that $30,000 it will be spilt into $1,000 for 30 students towards any college they choose to attend. Not only is a grand a welcoming gesture but that can easily pay for numerous school books and a part of the tuition that will be needed. Since Pensacola has been around since 1983, a million dollars has been given and well over that towards students for educational commitment. This grant is directed towards their local community of students that need a helping hand. From different high schools in the area, we will give you a list that is applied towards this grant.

What happens when an individual is away in the army had after a period of time has swiftly passed by, the college he was attending changed its courses and they even dropped your credits? This did happen to Domenico Fumarola who was deployed last year. After coming back and continuing two associate degrees online, he eventually wanted to finish the one degree he had started. But where do you go from their? Recently a program has been born that helps seek out a variety of people that fit a particular circumstance which focuses on veterans that have become underemployed or living within a low income region. Because of this grant the only thing Domenico Fumarola has to do is keep his GPA at a 2.5 setting. This is great, great news for any recent soldiers that have returned back home and seek a way to not only help finish school but by all means be finically secure while doing so.

For now Cincinnati’s Union Institute & University is the only known university that openly fuels this fire for a good purpose. From a bundle of anonymous donations to support the tuition, the Southern Midwest welcomes 15 veterans from that specific area. We hope that in fairly quick time more schools will join in and this will be a statewide advantage instead of a lottery shot. What Union Institute constitutes is that their main idea is geared to adult individuals that want to continue their studies. With the substantial grant, the veteran will have enough money to live on, pay tuition and even a bit more to cushion any expenses that may come after.

Domenico Fumarola is going for a business management bachelor that will surely guarantee a career even further towards his goals that he wants to accomplish.
