GW VALOR Travel Award Program

Through the generosity of GW Trustee Mark Shenkman and to further support GW VALOR Online students, an award focused on travel funds has been established to bring eligible VALOR Students participating in online GW degree programs to campus in order to connect and interact with industry professionals and employers at specific events. An additional benefit of this campus visit will be the opportunity for students to meet with a career coach, faculty, GW VALOR staff, and tour the main GW campus.
