On Wednesday the nation honored our Veterans.  Veterans Day is a special time to say thank you to veterans and their families for their service and the sacrifices they have made to keep us all safe and free.  In a larger sense, we should all honor and remember our veterans each and every day for all that they have done.  It is a challenging time for veterans transitioning to civilian life and more must be done to support them as they enter the job market.  To that point, the Coalition for Government Procurement is proud to have partnered with the George Washington University (GWU) to establish an endowed Scholarship Fund in recognition of the outstanding achievements of qualified veterans at GWU concentrating their studies in the field of U.S. Government procurement and pursuing a law or master’s degree.

 

The endowed scholarship is a true convergence of the Coalition’s interests and values – common sense in government procurement and support for veterans.  Acquisition excellence, access to best value commercial solutions, and policies that promote a strong acquisition workforce are cornerstones of the association’s agenda. With direction from our member companies and the Board of Directors, the Coalition has long supported programs that benefit our nation’s veterans.  Last year, in recognition of the Coalition’s 35th anniversary, our Board authorized the establishment of the scholarship fund to benefit veterans pursuing a career in federal acquisition.

 

If you would like to contribute to funding this scholarship, we would greatly appreciate your tax deductible donation, which can easily be processed by visiting http://lawgwu.imodules.com/cgp.  Thank you in advance for your corporate and individual support.

 

Each day, remember and honor our veterans!
