Finding College Money is Easier Than You Think

Attending college is a huge investment, physically, mentally and financially. A lot of service members think they can’t afford to go to school without going into debt. Want to take that college path but you’re afraid the GI Bill won’t cover the costs? Believe it or not, in addition to the GI Bill, there are millions of dollars in scholarships and grants out there for the taking. DANTES provides information and advice to veterans and service members on the hundreds of programs that put a college degree within reach.

An education is the foundation for a successful career and you shouldn’t let an obstacle stop you from reaching your goals. As a service member or veteran you could be eligible for enough “free money” to cover your entire college degree. The hard part is knowing where to look, that’s where DANTES comes in. The DANTES website will help service members find benefits, scholarships, federal aid, loans and grants. Here are just a few of the programs you will find on the website.

Whether you’re on active duty or a member of the Reserves or National Guard, the Department of Veterans Affairs has a wealth of financial benefits and services available to military members and their dependents.

You’re not just limited to military based assistance. Veterans and service members could be eligible for non-military related scholarships and grants. From state of residence to field of study assistance to Federal Aid, click here to learn more.

Membership does have some privileges. The Army, Navy, Airforce, Marines and Coast Guard have tuition assistance programs available to active duty and active reserve members.

Finding free money is easier than you realize and DANTES will help you get it.  We’ll provide the resources, all you have to do is make a plan.
