Free Money for MSVA - Student Veteran Survey


One of our own MU student-veterans, David Shwalb, is finishing up his PhD so he can go back on Active Duty. He needs us to fill out a 15-20 minute online survey for him, and he's donating $3.33 to the MSVA for every survey completed (up to $700). That means if 210 veterans fill out this survey, that is $700 that we will have for tailgates, MSVA activities, etc. David is also giving away several $100 personal prizes, so please take the time to fill it out. The link is:

Below you'll also find an email from David, which describes his study in more detail.


Dear Student-Veteran,

My name is David and I’m a grad student and military veteran working on my dissertation research project at the University of Missouri. I looking for student-veterans attending college full-time who are willing to complete a brief internet-based survey as part of my research. I’m studying how hope, support, and stress affect veterans in higher education.

For each survey completed by a student-veteran at your school, I will donate $3.33 to your school’s Student Veterans Association, up to $700. Additionally, when you complete the survey you can also enter a drawing for one of three $100 gift certificates to Walmart.
