In addition to federal programs such as the GI Bill, there are veterans benefits programs provided by the states. The following are the Vermont veterans’ benefits programs for education in 2018.
Armed Services Scholarship
The Armed Services Scholarship is a State of Vermont program for the spouse and children of military members who died on active duty since 2001, or the spouse and children of Vermont National Guard members who have died while serving at any time. The scholarship can be used towards the completion of an undergraduate degree at a Vermont school. For Vermont state schools, the scholarship covers the full tuition; for Vermont private schools, the scholarship reduces the tuition.
