The Montgomery GI Bill is for those who have enlisted in the Armed Forces. Under the program, members of the Armed Forces can enroll in up to 36 months of education benefits. These benefits are payable for up to 10 years upon release from active duty, according to the Montgomery GI Bill.
Active duty members can earn up to $1,360 a month in educational training funds for three years or more of full-time service under the Montgomery GI Bill.
The General Henry H. Arnold Education Grant Program provides scholarship opportunities for sons and daughters of active duty, retired, retired reserve, and deceased Air Force members. Also, the grant program is open to stateside spouses of active members as well as surviving spouses.
The General Henry H. Arnold Education Grant Program distributes awards of $2,000 and is based on need in conjunction with cost of attendance and family income. All applicants to the General Henry H. Arnold Education Grant Program are required to fill out an application.
Recipients of an Air Force ROTC Scholarship will win one of three types of scholarships. The first pays for the entire cost of tuition, most fees, and $900 toward textbooks. A second award type pays up to $18,000 in tuition and $900 for books. Finally, the third award grants recipients the cost of in-state tuition as well as $900 a year for textbooks.
In order to apply for an Air Force ROTC Scholarship, applicants must submit an application that includes a physical assessment, high school transcripts, and SAT/ACT scores.
Applying for the Air Force ROTC Scholarship in no way obligates recipients to join the Air Force; however, acceptance of the scholarship does. Upon graduation, recipients must complete at least four years active duty service as an Officer.
