- An education allowance for eligible veterans which covers the costs of tuition and books of your education to attend the most expensive public university in your state of residence.
- A private school education provision where the U.S. government would fund the costs of the most expensive public university plus match dollar-for-dollar aid private universities provide to cover the complete costs of your tuition.
Depending upon your situation, the following benefit could require your commitment of future military service and/or reenlistment:
- A pass along feature (or tuition fund transfer) to wives and children of war veterans.
