Going to Grad School After the Military

You’ve probably heard of the financial benefits of joining the military, and one of the greatest is tuition assistance. Many service members attend graduate school after their service. Clark Yuan and Faraz are both former military officers and current grad school students. Joining Bold TV on the 19th anniversary of 9/11, they remember all too keenly that we’re still a country at war. But since they’ve experienced serving their country in the military, they now know the altruism of the GI Bill and its tuition assistance program. They discuss their experience of furthering their education after service.

Tuition aid from the post-9/11 GI Bill

Yuan says that the post-9/11 GI Bill has different tiers for service members. Tuition assistance and housing allowances depend on how many days of active duty were served. But those that qualify for the post-9/11 GI Bill have a greater advantage than the service members that qualified before that date. Tuition aid doesn’t always mean the school bill is paid in full. But some schools may implement the Yellow Ribbon Matching Program, where they match what the GI Bill provides. Also, the VA runs the Vocational Rehabilitation Program, which provides 100% tuition coverage for people that have disabilities from their service. Many service members take advantage of this generous aid.

Military lessons transferring to school

Yuan and Faraz are honored to have served their country. And they are grateful for the benefits their country provides. But they also carry lessons that shape how they look at life. The military shapes your mindset, but what lessons can you take into grad school? “Attitude is altitude,” Faraz said. He learned in flight school that if he kept a positive perspective, he would keep climbing.
