“Their program helped me receive between 12 and 16 college credits based on my military experience and training,” Melugin said. “This saved me at least a semester of time.”
Melugin used that time to participate in undergraduate research with a faculty mentor. The experience has inspired Melugin to work with the Army Research Institute. The ACE award provides $1,000 to Melugin for his education; he plans to use it for graduate school.
