In addition to federal programs such as the GI Bill, there are veterans’ benefits programs provided by the states.  The following are the Indiana veterans’ benefits programs for education in 2018.

Indiana Free Tuition for Children of Disabled Veterans

Indiana offers free tuition and fee exemption at state schools to children of disabled veterans, Purple Heart Recipients and their children, and children of former POW/MIA. The veteran must have:

  • been a resident of Indiana for 36 consecutive months
  • served in a wartime period (including August 2, 1990 – present) or
  • received a Purple Heart Medal

The benefit may be as high as free tuition and fees for 124 credit hours and is good at state schools.

A grant that guarantees up to 100% of certain tuition costs will be met by the State of Indiana for eligible members of the Indiana Air and Army National Guard.
