You served our country and University of Arkansas Grantham is honored to provide you with a quality education that gives you more for your military aid. UA Grantham accepts and is knowledgeable about the many various forms of military education benefits available to service members, veterans and their families. Such as:
University of Arkansas Grantham is approved by all U.S. military branches for TA. Accessing and applying your military TA is a process that can take several weeks, so it’s best to get started as soon as possible.
UA Grantham works with you to bridge the gap until your TA benefit is replenished. UA Grantham’s Heroes Program Active-Duty Bridge Scholarship is available to military students using TA. It provides up to $1,000 annually to help you stay on track when your TA runs out. You’ll be able to continue with your studies without having to tap into GI Bill® benefits or use other forms of military financial assistance. For more information, contact your Student Advisor.
If you served on active duty, you might be eligible for education benefits offered by the Department of Veterans Affairs. For example, the Post 9/11 GI Bill® provides financial support for educational and housing expenses to individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service after September 10, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days. You must have received an honorable discharge to be eligible for the Post 9/11 GI Bill®.
GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government Web site at https://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.
