Money for College: 100% Tuition Assistance

The Guard can pay up to 100% of your college tuition and general fees, based on in-state public institution tuition rates—that’s up to $18,000 over four years.*

Note: Federal Tuition Assistance is based on funds availability. Many states offer additional college funding such as State Tuition Waivers that reduce a percentage of the cost of tuition upfront.

Montgomery GI Bill

In addition to paying your college tuition, we’ll send you a monthly allowance of up to $333 for expenses—about $11,000 over a four-year period. Best of all, this money is sent directly to you (not to your school) to spend on books, supplies—or anything you want. Your recruiter will have all the details.

Post-9/11 GI Bill

For Soldiers with at least 90 days of Active Duty service on or after September 11, 2001, the Post-9/11 GI Bill can cover up to 100% of your tuition, depending on the length of time you’ve served. You may also be eligible for an annual stipend of $1,000 for books and supplies, and your benefits may be transferable to you dependents.

Plus, for individuals paying higher private school, graduate school or out-of-state tuition, the Yellow Ribbon Program may be able to provide the necessary additional funding. Ask your recruiter for details.

Army National Guard Kicker

The Army National Guard Kicker supplement to the Montgomery GI Bill pays up to $350 per month in living expenses—up to $12,600 over 36 months. You’ll need to apply and qualify for this program. For more information, talk to your local recruiter.

Reserve Officer’s Training Corps (ROTC) Scholarships

ROTC is a college elective that allows you to earn a commission straight out of college as a second lieutenant in the Army. The course consists of both academic classes and hands-on training—mental and physical challenges that will help you succeed in college and beyond. Participation takes just a few hours per week.

Scholarships include:

  • A wide range of merit-based scholarships that pay up to full college tuition
  • Additional funds to pay for books, supplies and other school fees
  • Tax-free stipends up to $500 per month if you qualify
