Scholarships and education benefits:The American Legion hosts a state by state listing of education benefits. Keep in mind state benefits are not static. More and more states are passing legislation to offer in-state tuition to Veterans, making their schools more welcoming and accessible to Veterans.
The Post-9/11 GI Bill Facebook page keeps an eye on this kind of legislation, and frequently posts information about education benefits at the state and even the school level.
The Department of Defense Spouse Education and Career Opportunities program works to provide military spouses with comprehensive resources and tools to strengthen their education and career opportunities. Trained counselors help spouses identify their career interests and aptitudes. They provide information about today's job market and work opportunities, including portable skills and careers, entrepreneurship and federal employment options. Counselors help spouses learn about education options and licensing or credentialing requirements. They also help spouses identify, compare and weigh the costs of potential schools and programs to help them reach their career goals.
