The Montgomery GI Bill assists active duty service members and reservists in pursuing higher education degrees, certificates, and other education and training. The Montgomery GI Bill supports those who enlist in the U.S. armed forces through two main programs:
- Montgomery GI Bill Active Duty – Also known as Chapter 30, this program provides education benefits to Veterans and Servicemembers who have completed at least two years of active duty service. Active duty personnel who enroll and pay $100 per month for 12 months are eligible for a monthly education benefit once they have completed a minimum service obligation.
- Montgomery GI Bill Selected Reserve – Reservists with a six-year obligation in the Selected Reserve who are actively drilling may receive 36 months of education benefits.
