The G.I. Bill for U.S. Military Veterans

An exhaustive list of colleges, flight schools, and technical training organizations may provide free tuition or substantial subsidies to veterans of the U.S. military under the G.I. Bill from the Department of Veterans Affairs, and in some cases for their spouse and children. Hundreds of specialties are covered by the bill, from drone operation to rotorcraft to mechanical skills. Check with Veterans Affairs for your eligibility and for career counseling, then search for and compare educational opportunities using their search engine. For example, as only one of hundreds of listings, the Jeppesen unit of Boeing company provides a fully-paid six week course and housing for aircraft dispatching, to eligible veterans under the GI Bill.
