WUSTL welcomes military veterans​

Sid Hastings

Military veteran Charlie Felker, MBA ’13, addresses fellow veterans who are members of the incoming MBA class during a summer reception at the home of Mahendra Gupta, PhD, dean of the Olin Business School and the Geraldine J. and Robert L. Virgil Professor of Accounting and Management. Part of MBA GO! Week, the program helped acquaint 14 incoming veterans with each other and with the MBA program at Olin. For years, Olin has provided exceptional scholarship opportunities for many former junior military officers and non-commissioned officers through Olin Veterans Association (OVA) Scholarships. Washington University is a full partner in the Yellow Ribbon Program. For candidates who are admitted to and who are eligible for the program, all tuition costs are covered jointly by the school and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
