UCLA Anderson has been awarded a $50,000 grant from Newman’s Own Foundation, the independent foundation created by the late actor and philanthropist, Paul Newman, a U.S Navy veteran.
Newman’s Own Foundation made the award to UCLA Anderson as part of a broader commitment to support veteran entrepreneurship and higher education. The grant will benefit Anderson’s summer Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV), which is entering its 10th year. EBV is headquartered at Syracuse University’s Institute for Veterans and Military Families.
“UCLA Anderson and the Price Center are honored to receive this commitment from Newman’s Own Foundation,” said Senior Associate Dean and EBV Faculty Director Al Osborne, Jr. “This generous support will allow us to enhance our efforts in assisting veteran service men and women as they launch their businesses.”
