Alabama Department of Veterans Affairs announces major changes to its Alabama G.I. Dependents' Scholarship program
 
Published Thursday, April 24, 2014

*The Alabama Department of Veterans Affairs announces major changes to its Alabama G.I. Dependents' Scholarship program.  This program provides free tuition, textbooks and instructional fees at any state-supported institution of higher learning, college or university to qualified
dependents of eligible disabled veterans.*

*On March 18, 2014, Governor Robert Bentley signed into law Act No. 2014-177 that amended critical portions of the scholarship program.  It eliminates the requirement that a veteran must have served during a wartime period or under extra-hazardous conditions.*

*Beginning in the Fall 2014 semester, dependents of eligible peace-time veterans may now qualify to participate in the program if all other qualifications are met.  Dependents previously denied education benefits based solely on the veterans' peace-time service dates must reapply by August 1, 2015, to receive the full benefit.*

*Also beginning in the Fall 2014 semester, the program will cover only undergraduate level courses at the in-state tuition rate.  Students presently enrolled in the program will not have any change in their benefits.*

*Interested veterans, or their family members should visit their county veterans' service office for more information, or call 334-242-5077.*
