Financial Assistance Programs

Last Updated :

Counseling is available at the Base Education & Training Center on a number of financial assistance programs which are available. These programs include: 
• Tuition Assistance, available at a rate of 100% to most active duty service members. Officers will incur a two year commitment if tuition assistance is used. 
• The Post 9/11 GI Bill was introduced in 2009 and provides benefits for individuals who served on active duty on or after September 11, 2001. This GI Bill has a transferability option. 
• Persons who enter active duty after June 30, 1985, who enrolled in the Montgomery GI Bill, are eligible to use these benefits after two years active duty. Those individuals originally entitled to Vietnam era GI Bill benefits have been converted to the Montgomery GI Bill. 
• The Veterans’ Education Assistance Program (VEAP) applies to military persons who entered active duty between January 1, 1977 and June 30, 1985. 
• The Federal Government may award monies to students based on financial need. These funds may be used by active duty, civilians and dependents. Applicants must be undergraduate students who are attending college at least half time. 
• A variety of scholarships and loans are also available. Specific information is available from the schools or education counselors. Also check with the Airman and Family Readiness Center for additional resources.
