Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Department of Veterans’ Services
Center Assists Veterans with Finances and Entrepreneurial Training—Scholarships Available
The Center for Women & Enterprise, which helps women and men start and run their own businesses, is offering training and technical assistance to veterans and their families, and many qualify for scholarships.
The Center offers classes in repairing credit, debt consolidation, choosing and developing a business idea, and writing a business plan. It also offers assistance securing loans, and offers one-on-one business and legal consulting.
If you have recently returned from active duty and are looking for a way to start over, or have always thought you could succeed as an entrepreneur, this is a great way to explore that option. Classes range from one three-hour session in the evening to multi-week courses.
National Guard members, ex-Guard members and their spouses, and dependants may qualify for full scholarships through the Guard Support of Massachusetts. Other scholarships are available based on need.
