Funding Program Available for Veterans


The Department of Veterans Affairs has made funds available for veteran students who are still awaiting their education benefit claim to be processed, according to Christina McClane, SWOSU coordinator of enrollment for veterans.  

Eligible veterans can receive up to a $3,000 advance, which will be recouped from future benefit payments.

Students who have applied for one of VA's education programs and have not yet received their monthly benefit payment for the Fall 2009 term can request a one-time advance payment at the local VA Regional Office or through VA's website,
