Since 2008, Florida State University (FSU) has been 1 of 7 universities that hold a summer Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV). The 2012 annual program begins in May with online components leading in to a 9-day residency at the university from June 19 through June 27.
The EBV is designed to provide experiential training and education for veterans who suffered service-connected disabilities. In many cases, these veterans are unable to return to their previous occupations, due to their disabilities, but they still have a desire to put their skills to use. Disabled veterans who start their own small businesses may find great satisfaction in building something they truly want to invest their abilities in.
Considering the support from the associated universities and other related organizations, the cost to attend a EBV is free to eligible applicants. To apply, disabled veterans may visit FSU’s application page to fill out the online application and view instructions. While there is no deadline, there are limited spaces available and veterans should apply as soon as possible.
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and many other organizations also offer support and grants to many aspiring veterans.
