San Jose, CA, August 26, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- On the heels of the passing of the Post-9/11 GI Bill – the most comprehensive education benefit for veterans offered since World War II – Henley-Putnam University announced a new contest offering service men and women a chance to earn a scholarship toward a bachelor’s, master’s or doctorate degree in a Strategic Security–related field.
“Henley-Putnam University was founded by men and women who have served this nation and know what that sacrifice means,” said Michael Corcoran, PhD, Henley-Putnam University president and former U.S. Secret Service agent. “We are so proud of our military students. Through this contest, we hope to give back to these brave individuals by offering an additional opportunity for career advancement.”
The “Share Your Service Story” contest invites former and active service men and women to share their stories through one-page essays reflecting on their service experience and career aspirations. Beginning August 24, 2009, prospective students can visit http://www.Henley-Putnam.edu/829-185.htm and submit an essay answering one of the following questions:
1. What does service mean to you? Share with us your most defining moment in serving your country, town or community, and how that moment contributed to who you are today.
2. What do you want to accomplish through your life of service? Please include three ways in which you'd like to impact your community, country or world.
3. What could you accomplish in your life with a degree in Intelligence Management, Terrorism and Counterterrorism, or the Management of Personal Protection? What would be possible if you had increased knowledge and skills in these areas?
Students may submit an essay only once. A one-time, $5,000 scholarship will be awarded to the contest participant judged to best fulfill the spirit of service and who wishes to earn a degree with Henley-Putnam University. To enter, participants must email their essay to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 15th, 2009. The $5,000 scholarship prize may be combined with military benefits.
Henley-Putnam offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Intelligence Management, Terrorism and Counterterrorism Studies, and the Management of Personal Protection, as well as a doctorate degree in Strategic Security. A degree in Strategic Security will prepare contest applicants for high-level managerial and leadership positions in government agencies, the private defense sector, nonprofits, think tanks, the military, and the protection/security field. Henley-Putnam also offers numerous certificate courses where students can earn transferrable credits in areas such as Intelligence Analysis, Counterterrorism Studies, and Intelligence and Terrorism Profiling.
