The United States rewards military service with generous assistance to help Air Force personnel succeed
in higher education. Programs like the stalwart G.I.Bill provide financial aid for soldiers, during and after
active duty service. The Montgomery G. I. Bill is a valuable military benefit that underwites college funding
for individuals who serve in the Air Force and other branches of the U.S. Armed Forces.
The college assistance is dispensed by two chapters: Mongomery G.I. Active Duty aid and Montgomery G.I.
Selected Reserve assistance. Qualified members of the Reserves and Army National Guard are eligible for
G.I. Selected Reserve Aid after they havee completed their active duty training periods, and start fulfilling
six-year reserve commitments.
G.I.Bill grants can be applied to degree programs, as well as education that leads to certificates,
apprenticeships and vocational credentials. Training, tuition and other higher education expenses are
offset by Montgomery funding. Successful applicants have high school diplomas or equivalent credentials,
