Veteran Fellowship Program

The Veteran Fellowship Program in Maryland and Washington, D.C., provides recently separated veterans with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the civilian workplace through an on-the-job fellowship with businesses of all sizes.

The program is made possible due to a Department of Labor National Dislocated Worker Grant awarded to Anne Arundel Workforce Development Corporation (AAWDC) and is offered in collaboration with Military Corps Career Connect (C3). C3 serves Maryland’s transitioning service members, active-duty military spouses and recently separated veterans (non-retirees).
