“Service to my country has always been the most important principle that I live by. I spent six years serving my country in the United States Army, and I have every intention to continue my service after I graduate. Without my degree, I would be unable to progress to the next level, to truly hone my skills as a warrior and scholar. No matter what, I would have found a way to pay for my education, but the benevolence of my donor has lifted that hardship from me. I am forever in their debt and will continue to serve my community and my country until that debt has been paid forward.”
– David Dibblee, ESIA ’15
Veteran students like David benefit greatly from scholarship support. Mildred Bland Miller’s planned gift, which will establish the Woodrow Wilson Miller and Mildred Bland Miller Scholarship Fund, will help veteran students obtain their degree and reduce financial concerns. The gift will provide scholarships to students who are active military, ROTC, or a military veteran of the American armed services, as well as students enrolled in GW’s School of Business. Mildred’s husband, Woodrow Wilson Miller, CCAS ’47, served in the Navy Seabees in the Pacific during World War II.
