GI Bill


What is it?

A federally funded program administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) and military services. GI Bill programs have a lifetime maximum of 36 months of full-time benefits for any one GI Bill, but can be combined with other GI bill programs for a lifetime maximum of 48 months of full-time benefits. GI Bill helps qualifying Veterans and their family members get money to cover some or all of the costs for college, graduate school, and training programs.
