Operation Graduate attended the National Association for Professional Women’s (NAPW) National Networking Summit and Career Event in New York City. With hundreds in attendance, this powerful networking event serves as a way for NAPW members to increase the access of valuable professional connections where they can aspire and achieve their personal or career goals. Operation Graduate attended the summit to promote themselves as NAPW’s newest education partner. Many members and attendees stopped by the Operation Graduate booth to learn more on how Operation Graduate can help them achieve their goals. Our own Dr. James Chitwood, Vice President of Enrollment Management did a presentation to all attendees on how Operation Graduate fits in.
Through the Operation Gradate program, NAPW members and their families are provided with the opportunity to access the tools and resources needed to further their education. By participating in the program, members have the support they need to make earning a degree at a non-profit, regionally accredited university easier and more affordable. Members interested in furthering their education stopped by the Operation Graduate booth to take advantage of the free one-on-one assistance to identify the school and the degree program that is right for them based on an individual assessment of their goals, educational background and career experience.
In addition to providing guidance on how members can achieve their educational goals, Operation Graduate provided information on how members can take advantage of the Operation Graduate Scholarship Fund. With this scholarship, eligible members and their families may be awarded up to $2000 in scholarship funds if they attend an Operation Graduate partner school.
Operation Graduate aspires to award hundreds of thousands of dollars in Operation Graduate scholarship funds in 2016 and beyond. Operation Graduate is excited to continue to provide a valuable benefit to NAPW members and will continue to add to their efforts of empowering its members through higher education.
