WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

UNC Wilmington has received a $10,000 grant from the Student Veterans of America and the Home Depot Foundation for improvements to the university's Military Resource Lounge.

“We are very excited to be one of the recipients of the SVA Home Depot grant,” said Stephanie Ganser, assistant dean of UNCW’s Office of the Dean of Students. “UNCW has a strong commitment to our military-affiliated students, and we have made great strides in supporting our veterans, active military and their families.”

UNCW established the lounge in August 2015. It's s designated space for military-affiliated students to study and receive assistance from Veteran Affairs work study students.

“This grant will help improve the space and the amenities so our students can continue to be successful inside and outside of the classroom,” said Ganser.
