The Montgomery GI Bill - for Reservists

The Montgomery GI Bill for Selective Reservists is educational support that covers members of all reserve units (Army, Navy, Marines, etc.) as well as the branches of the National Guard. The benefits are similar to the active/veteran bill in that it offers 36 months of educational support. The qualifications, howevere, are different and include: a 6 year obligation to serve, completions of IADT and remaining in good standing during reserve duty.

There are restrictions such as: the courses must be towards a degree and cannot be towards a license and the student must be entered into a specific degree. Reserve offices have all the information will be able to steer students in the right direction.
