Entrepreneur Bootcamp for Veterans Spouses: The Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans’ Families (EBV-F) is an education and training program founded in 2010 at the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University (SU), which expanded to Florida Statue University (FSU) in 2012 and Purdue University in 2013. The program leverages the flexibility inherent in small business ownership to provide a vocational and economic path forward for military family members who are now supporting a wounded warrior, or for the surviving spouse of a military member who gave his or her life in service to our country. The EBV-F is operated by SU’s Institute for Veterans and Military Families. They also have an Entrepreneur Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities.

Feds Hire Vets: Military Spouse (hiring) Preference (DOD program) is different from Military Spouse Appointing Authority (Federal Executive Order). So if you are only looking for work through MSP and not utilizing your noncompetitive status for potentially ALL federal jobs (the hiring department isn’t obligated from what I can tell), then you might be missing out.
