Military Alliance Community Center Newsletter

The Military Alliance Community Center Newsletter is the best way for veteran and military-connected students to stay updated on community events! Newsletters are sent out every month during the regular academic year. All veteran and military-connected students should automatically receive the publication, but please email if you'd like to sign up for the mailing list!

Veterans Future Lab

The Veterans Future Lab is New York's first business incubator for military veterans. Sponsored by Barclay's, this initiative is part of the NYU Tandon Future Labs, a network of innovation spaces and programs that support early-stage startups through personalized and curated support services, mentorship and resources. 

The Veterans Future Lab is open to graduates of NYU Tandon Future Labs’ Veteran Entrepreneurship Training (VET) program (see below), early-stage companies with one to five full-time staffers, and seasoned veteran entrepreneurs willing to mentor and seeking expanded office space. 

Located in easy-to-reach Industry City, an exciting multi-use former industrial complex in Brooklyn’s Sunset Park, the Veterans Future Lab is just minutes away from Downtown Brooklyn and Manhattan. For more information, view the Veteran's Future Lab flyer or email

NYU Dentistry Veterans Oral Care Access Resource (VOCARE)

In Fall 2022,  NYU College of Dentistry, in partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs, officially launched a new program to increase Veterans’ access to dental care. The program, called VOCARE (Veterans Oral Care Access Resource), is part of the VA’s VETSmile pilot program. With only 8 percent of Veterans eligible for dental benefits through the VA, VOCARE and VETSmile aim to close the gap in affordable care for Veterans. NYU Dentistry expects to provide 5,000 Veteran patient visits in the first year of VOCARE, with a goal of providing between 6,000 and 7,500 patient visits in future years.

Veteran Filmmaker Fellowship

NYU Tisch’s Department of Dramatic Writing hosted for the first time this spring the Veteran Filmmaker Fellowship, a free program on the fundamentals of screenwriting and filmmaking. The program requires no prior experience or education in writing or film. This free program provides a supportive environment where participants learn to outline and write a full-length feature screenplay of their own and learn the fundamentals of the filmmaking process. We thank Lou Ferrer, Tisch Class of 2023, for creating this initiative to ensure that veteran voices are heard! If interested in participating in the program, or for more information, email or visit 

Steven A. Cohen Military Family Center at NYU Langone

The Steven A. Cohen Military Family Center at NYU Langone  provides free, compassionate care for veterans and military families who are experiencing the long-term effects of all phases of military service and other life stresses, including relationship difficulties, school problems, and unemployment and relocation issues.

We welcome veterans, including anyone who has served in the United States Armed Services, regardless of role, discharge status, or combat experience, as well as members of the National Guard and Reserve. We also extend our services to the parents, siblings, spouses and partners, children, caretakers, and other family members of active-duty personnel, veterans, and members of the National Guard or Reserve.

We offer high-quality, accessible, and integrated mental healthcare. Our free, confidential services are available in-person or through our Telemental Health Program. For patients in New York and Connecticut, these online sessions are offered through the NYU Langone Health app. The confidential platform allows our mental health professionals to provide personalized care to military veterans and family members who prefer to work with their care team remotely or at flexible times.

NYU recognizes there are times when veterans who rely on monetary benefits from the Department of Veteran's Affairs and/or other external agencies are challenged by untimely payments. If you are an NYU student who is a veteran or military connected student who is in such a situation and need temporary assistance while waiting for delayed payments, please contact the Office of Financial Aid, or if you're uncertain which NYU office to contact, but have veterans or military affiliated related questions, you may reach out directly to: Stephen Westby, Assistant Director for Veterans Transition and Success Email:, Phone: 212-992-6040
