The G.I. Bill was established during World War II and signed into law by Franklin Delano Roosevelt as the “Serviceman’s Readjustment Act of 1944.” Since then, through a number of iterations, it’s morphed and improved — with the recently-passed “Forever G.I. Bill” (otherwise known as the “Harry W. Colmery Veterans Educational Assistance Act”) existing as evidence to this progress.
Today, it can help a veteran, service member or even a qualified dependent attend a school of advanced learning and graduate with a degree by providing money for not only tuition, but books, housing as well as other supplies.
If you’ve applied for the G.I. Bill, and plan to use it, you can find out just how much money it’ll give you through the power of these rate tables here.
Remember, the amount depends upon a number of factors, including just which program you choose.
