The US Department of Veteran Affairs offer the Post-9/11 GI Bill, which provides financial support for education and housing to individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service after September 10, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days. You must have received an honourable discharge to be eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill.
All payments and maximum amounts are applicable to individuals eligible for the full benefit (100% eligibility tier). If you are not eligible for the full benefit, the payment and maximum amounts listed will be prorated based on your eligibility percentage.
Under the Post-9/11 GI Bill you may receive:
- Tuition fees, capped at the national maximum rate. The maximum reimbursement is up to $21,970.46 per academic year for foreign schools (1 August 2016—31 July 2017). The tuition fee payment is sent directly to the University.
- A monthly housing allowance.
- A books and supplies stipend.
For more information please see the US Department of Veteran Affairs website.
Before you apply, please search for the University of East Anglia to see a list of approved courses we are currently able to offer VA funding. Search by adding the institution name of ‘University of East Anglia', and the country as ‘United Kingdom’.
If your chosen course is not on the list, it has not yet been approved. Do not worry, please contact us and we will contact the VA on your behalf for course approval for your chosen programme. This process will take up to 16 weeks so please plan ahead for this. We must have the course approval before VA will accept a completed Enrolment Certification (VA Form 22-1999) for funding towards your study.
To apply for VA benefits, please apply online.
You need to contact us to let us know that you qualify for VA funding so we can arrange the completion of the VA Form 22-1999. We will then arrange for you to come in to check and sign the form, before we submit it for you.
