The Secret’s Out: Mason is a military-friendly institution


George Mason University has been named a ‘military friendly’ university for the 10th time by Viqtory, Military Friendly, and other evaluators.

About 4,000 of our students have a military affiliation through dependency, service or a spouse.

Our Military, Veterans and Family Initiative (MVFI), launched in 2020, brings together all of Mason’s military services and benefits and allows veterans and their families to take advantage of a range of assistance that supports their education, well-being and professional development.

It’s a one-stop shop where veterans and their families can apply for scholarships, join fellowship programs and internships, and access resources, including free legal clinics, psychological services and academic counseling.

“A veteran is just like any adult learner pursuing an education, with the exception that they have an incredible skill set from [their] military experience,” said Jennifer Connors, director of Mason’s Office of Military Services.
