If a higher education is what you want, joining the National Guard is a decision you may want to make. This could be your ticket to a college education and a better future.
Many students ask the same question: how am I going to pay for a college education? When you join the National Guard, there are many answers to this common question.
There are a number of education benefits to consider. While you may not qualify for all of them, your National Guard recruiter can give you advice on whether or not you are eligible.
– Montgomery GI Bill
– 100% Tuition Assistance
– Army National Guard Kicker
– Post 9/11 GI Bill
– National Guard Scholarships
– Student Loan Repayment Program
Regardless of which one of these programs you turn to, one thing stays the same: you are going to get assistance paying for your college education. With the tuition assistance program, for example, the National Guard will pay 100% of your college tuition and related fees – up to $18,000 over a four year period.
To go along with the cost of tuition, some programs, such as the Montgomery GI Bill, help to pay your monthly expenses. With this, you will receive roughly $300 month over the course of your four year education. Best yet, the money is sent directly to you as opposed to the school. This way you can use it as you see fit.
For more information on education programs and other financial packages, contact your local National Guard recruiter. It is important to know what you qualify for, how much money it will save you, and how to get started.
As you can see, the National Guard puts a lot of time and resources into helping members who are interested in attending school.
