What educational benefits are available?

VA education benefits can help you pay your tuition, pick out a school, and choose a career. If you’re an active-duty service member, a Veteran, a member of the National Guard or Reserves, or a qualified survivor or dependent, you may be eligible for VA education benefits through the GI Bill and other educational assistance programs.

Common educational benefits include:

  • Post-9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33) helps pay for school or job training. If you’ve served on active duty after September 10, 2001, you may qualify.
  • Montgomery GI Bill helps pay for education and training programs, based on the length of your service. There are two programs for the bill - Active Duty or Selected Reserve.
  • Vocational Rehab and Employment assists active duty or recently discharged veterans with educational and career counseling services.
  • Survivors' and Dependents' Assistance aides the dependent or surviving spouse of a Veteran with educational assistance.
