STUDENT VETERANS

Today's veterans can face any number of obstacles while furthering their education. Taking advantage of all the benefits you've earned and DESERVE shouldn't be one of them!  Below you'll find information on resources to help you navigate the unique experience of being a student veteran.

Understanding the differences in GI Bills, finding the right school for you, and other information you may not have thought about on this journey are available by visiting the VFW Student Veteran Support page

1 Student Veteran

A program between the VFW and Student Veteran's of America (SVA), was established to help be a direct link for Veteran's experiencing difficulties accessing their benefits.  Any student veteran who is experiencing difficulty in accessing their GI Bill or other VA benefits, or believes they have been wrongfully denied these benefits, can now e-mail the VFW at 1studentveteran@vfw.org.  Veterans Service staff will acknowledge receipt of each inquiry within 24 hours during the workweek, then either intervene with the VA on behalf of the student veteran or recommend other courses of action.
