Veterans Education Success Inc.

Washington, D.C.



Veterans Education Success (VES) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy organization specialized in federal postsecondary policies and programs for veterans and current service members. VES conducts policy-relevant research, briefs federal policymakers and administrators on its findings, and supports military-affiliated students to engage their congressional representatives, federal agencies, and local media on higher education issues. With this support, VES will advocate for continuing and expanding protections against bad higher education actors who overload military-affiliated students with excessive debt, while also partnering with the American Institutes for Research to understand why nearly 500,000 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans are forgoing the GI Bill’s free-ride to college.
