The Veterans' Benefits Act of 2010

The Veterans' Benefits Act of 2010 has been passed by congress and hopefully will be signed into law by the President. One important section that is pertinent to military post secondary education representatives is the Pat Tillman Scholarship Initiative. The V.A will be required from 2012-2014 to keep an updated list of scholarship available to military and veterans. The list would be required to be online by June 2011.

Hopefully, the term scholarship is defined appropriately because to often savvy market driven colleges will offer a “scholarship” that is nothing more than small reduction in an already high price tag.

There is a list of scholarship to the right of this article for military, veterans, and spouses. There are also links to scholarship programs in the articles on this website at:
