Military Aid Programs

If you are a veteran or active-duty service member, obtaining a college or professional education can be an excellent way to enhance your civilian or military career. Fortunately, there are many military aid programs designed specifically to assist service members and their dependents with education expenses – most administered by the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs in conjunction with the various branches of the armed services. These military aid programs, along with traditional sources of federal and state student aid, can cover up to 100% of tuition and eligible education-related expenses, thereby helping veterans, active-duty service members and their dependents achieve their higher education goals.
