“I used my GI Bill® to return to school. …The process was fairly simple… and I received my monthly stipend for housing and books. Too easy!”

Scholarships for Veterans
Inspired by her father’s illustrious 30-year career in the U.S. Air Force, Excelsior alumna and former trustee Bryanne Hamill created two endowment funds to support veterans through scholarship awards. In addition, her generous leadership gift funds the Lt. Col. Bryant A. Murray Veterans Center.
“We should always pay it forward…people have helped me in obtaining scholarships to get my education. Now I want to pay it forward so that those who come to Excelsior…can have the benefit of the scholarships.”
— Bryanne Hamill
