Benefits of Veterans in STEM


Veterans in STEM students had access to a transition navigator, the support of other students, special opportunities for real-world experience, and contacts and connections with STEM employers. The program was designed to help Veterans in STEM members earn their degrees and find employment in the STEM fields.

  • Academic Coaching – Informal conversations with the Veterans in STEM Transition Navigator about once a month, or more frequently. You decide how frequently. Through the coaching calls, you can set goals and talk to someone who gets it and who knows how to help you connect with resources.
  • Cohort of Students – A group of students with whom you share unique struggles in an academic environment will help you gain the confidence and knowledge to be successful.
  • Tutoring and Educational Support – The college you attend may already have supports in place that you are not aware of. KC BANCS will help you realize the best resources that fit your individual needs.
  • Connections with STEM business and industry – Interested in a career in STEM, but don’t know which area? Veterans in STEM has opportunities for participants to connect with employers and learn more about STEM careers.
