A MESSAGE FROM OUR DIRECTOR
Governors State University helps you earn your degree as you pursue an advanced military role or civilian career. We're here to support veterans, active-duty service members and their family members who are pursuing their education. The majority of our staff is military-connected with a shared desire to continue to serve. The camaraderie you have experienced in the military lives on here at GSU, and we look forward to helping you find purpose forever.

Eickhoff Family Veteran's Fund:
Mr. Eickhoff, a Chicago Heights native, started his
relationship with GSU in 1980, when he began his MBA program. “Reflecting back,
I realize that my career and life changed the most after receiving my degree
from GSU,” Eickhoff told GSU Foundation CEO Will Davis. Now, almost thirty
years later, he is eager to give back to his fellow veterans and his
alma-mater—in a way that offers immediate, tangible and tactical support. He
established an Emergency Fund to support GSU student veterans with immediate
needs, such as books, gas cards, and fees. These micro grants shall be awarded
on an “as-needed” basis in fall & spring semesters.
1) Must be a degree seeking
veteran student enrolled at Governors State University;
2) Must have requisite
documents on file with the University verifying veteran status;
3) Must provide document of
the shortfall and need of micro-grant
of the University, excluding students receiving financial aid or state funds
