Dedicated to supporting our returning veteran heroes from Iraq and Afghanistan, Hodges University established the Scholarship Assistance for Veteran Education (SAVE) fund in 2006. Hodges University is an adult educational University that provides flexible class schedules, small classes and a dedicated faculty many who are veterans.
“The University is honored to have so many wonderful donors who believe in supporting veterans who placed their lives on hold to protect our freedom. We are equally proud that Hodges University is the regional educational institution of choice for veterans seeking high education as a means of making a successful transition back to civilian life.” says Philip Memoli, Vice President of University Advancement.

Wounded Warriors of Collier County donated $25,000 to the Veterans Scholarship Program at Hodges University for the second year in a row!
When Dale Mullin returned from fighting in the Vietnam War, he felt like there weren’t many resources to help him transition into civilian life.
The struggle he faced is what inspired him to found Wounded Warriors of Collier County, a nonprofit organization serving post-9/11 veterans. The organization presented a check for $25,000 to Hodges University’s veterans scholarship program at a ceremony Tuesday.
