The G.I. Bill is one of the most coveted benefits the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has to offer. Possessing such a powerful asset, however, and figuring out how and where to use it, can be a daunting task. That’s why there’s the GI Bill Comparison Tool.

With it, a veteran or active-duty service member can input their status, the specific benefit they’d like to use, their service length — and even what kind of classes they’d like to take (online only, in person only, in person and online, are the options) and it’ll search schools, then give a list, to compare and find the best fit — both money-wise, eduction-wise and more.

There’s also a field to add a location.
