Education Programs for Veterans

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Department of Labor (DoL) and the Department of Education (DoE) all administer a number of employment, education, and training programs for veterans. The following is a summary of these programs:

The major programs offered are:

  • The Montgomery G.I. Bill - Active Duty
  • The Montgomery G.I. Bill - Selected Reserve
  • Veteran's Educational Assistance Program (VEAP)
  • Veteran's Upward Bound
  • Veteran's Employment and Training

Remember: There may be many scholarships, special loans, grants, and more available outside of Federal Govt. It will take some research on your part, but take advantage of the time you have put into the service - it can and should be rewarded! You can get started by checking out the State Veteran Programs list.

Find out more about the G.I. Bills here:

Remember that G.I. Bill benefits only extend for a fixed period of time after you leave - generally 10 years for Active Duty and 10 - 14 years for Selective Reserve.

Members eligible for the Vietnam Era G.I. Bill Conversion are those individuals who had remaining entitlement under the Vietnam Era GI Bill on Dec. 31, 1989, and served on active duty without a break sometime between Oct. 19, 1984, and July 1, 1985, and continued to serve on active duty to July 1, 1988, or to July 1, 1987, followed by four years in the Selected Reserve after release from active duty.

VEAP education eligibility may be established even though the required active duty is not completed if the veteran: (a) receives VA disability compensation or military disability retirement; (b) served a previous period of at least 24 continuous months of active duty before Oct. 17, 1981; or (c) was discharged or released for early out, hardship or service-connected disability.

And homelessness is not just a problem among middle-age and elderly veterans. Younger veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan are trickling into shelters and soup kitchens seeking services, treatment or help with finding a job.
The Veterans Affairs Department has identified 1,500 homeless veterans from the current wars and says 400 of them have participated in its programs specifically targeting homelessness

Where the Money Goes

It’s about improving the quality of life for disabled veterans and developmentally disabled individuals. As one of the most cost-efficient lotteries in the United States, the New Jersey Lottery spends approximately one percent of its revenues to operate and promote its business. As the State’s fourth largest revenue producer, the Lottery raised over $2.5 billion in sales for fiscal year 2009, and was able to contribute more than $887
