Disabled Veterans Scholarship Program | Veterans Guitar Training
We at the Eastern School of Fretted Instrument Repair are proud of our outreach to our nation’s veterans as they have returned home from duty during these troubled and demanding times. We are happy to provide Veterans Guitar Training at our NJ Guitar Repair School.
Since being approved for training by the New Jersey Department of Veterans Training as a veteran approved vocational school, we have had several veterans attend our program and have a post graduate veteran’s employment rate of over 75%.
Effective February 20, 2013, the Eastern School of Fretted Instrument Repair is now offering an annual *full scholarship for a disabled veteran who wishes to enter Veterans guitar training.
