Olmsted Foundation sponsors Corps of Cadets overseas outreach

The George and Carol Olmsted Foundation increased its annual grant to $26,000 for UNG’s Corps of Cadets’ overseas travel and cultural immersion to provide opportunities for Atlanta-area cadets at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) to also take advantage of the trips.

The Olmsted Foundation, UNG and Georgia State University’s ROTC program have entered into an agreement for cadets from Morehouse College, Spelman College, and Clark Atlanta University to be part of these overseas trips, which typically last one to three weeks with UNG cadets. Cadets from all three HBCUs participate in Georgia State’s ROTC program.

Previously, 17 UNG cadets have gone overseas through Olmsted Foundation grants.
