FVA Background PicWelcome to the Foster Veterans Association!

The Foster Veterans Association is dedicated to the support and advocacy of Foster MBA students who have served, or are currently serving in the armed forces of their respective countries. We are committed to furthering the goals of our members through three areas:

  • Ease the transition of new veterans and help translate their unique and extraordinary experiences into meaningful careers
  • Strengthen the veteran network in Seattle and the greater Puget Sound
  • Grow and deepen the bonds between veterans and non-veterans in the program

Fundamentally, we are committed to enhancing camaraderie and esprit de corps through service to each other, the Foster School of Business, and the community in which we study and live.

Applicants for the Class of 2019 – Thank you for your interest in our incredible program! Consider attending a Class Visit or Shadow Day Event located on the Foster Admissions page. If you end up taking advantage of this, please reach out to us at the email below.

If you are a veteran thinking about business school – Foster should absolutely be on your list!
