Veterans Outreach Program Scholarship

Disaster Recovery International (DRI) Foundation is committed to helping our veterans succeed. To do their part, the Foundation has created a Veterans Outreach Program  to help Veterans realize their dreams and help both themselves and their respective organizations achieve great success as they transition into the professions of emergency response, crisis management, business continuity and disaster recovery.

The Veterans Outreach Program’s focus is to establish an industry-first “giving-back” scholarship program to active duty or recently separated (within five years) veterans of our United States Military. The scholarship will include, at no cost to qualified candidates, admission to Disaster Recovery Institute International educational course BCLE 2000 (Business Continuity), all course materials, qualifying examination, and all applicable course application fees. This four day course is valued at approximately $3500 and leads to a certification which can result in meaningful positions in civilian industry.

The Foundation is making every effort to ensure an impartial and objective awards process. Toward this end, all references to the applicant’s actual identity will be removed and applications will be judged by an independent committee from the Veterans Outreach Program consisting of non-DRI staff, a majority being former military are DRI members, board members, commission/committee members and contractors.

They encourage all interested veterans to apply.  You can find the scholarship application and instructions here.
