Today’s GI Bill

The Post-9/11 GI Bill was initially launched in August 2009, and has recently gone through legislative changes expanding the number of service members and veterans eligible. The Post-9/11 GI Bill provides access to higher education, making the reality of higher education more attainable than ever for today’s service members and veterans. It significantly expands educational benefits available to those who have served since September 11, 2001, offering up to 100 percent tuition and fee assistance at institutions of higher learning; housing assistance; an annual stipend for books and school supplies; and, in some cases, the opportunity to transfer benefits to spouses and other family members.

Today’s service members and veterans represent the leaders of tomorrow. The Post-9/11 GI Bill enables these men and women to pursue the higher education that, coupled with their unique experiences and skills, will position them to guide the United States through times of war and peace.
