Middlesex Community College receives grant to help veterans

Middlesex Community College, with campuses in Bedford and Lowell, recently received $10,000 from the Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation to help veterans transition from military service to higher education. The Strengthening Families Grant funding will be used to train college faculty and staff to better understand the needs of active military, veterans, and their family members, and to help students identify and connect with resources both on and off campus. “This grant will make a significant difference in allowing Middlesex to expand its services to veterans and their families,” said Patricia Demaras, the school’s assistant dean of international and multicultural affairs.
