Free GI Bill® Tool launched by the VA:

The Department of Veterans Affairs has launched a new version of the GI Bill® Comparison Tool, which was first launched in February 2014. The GI Bill® Comparison Tool is designed to make it easier for veterans, service members, and family members to estimate their GI Bill® education benefits and learn more about VA's approved college, university, and other education and training programs.

The updated version of the tool has new functionality, including a more robust GI Bill® benefits calculator and additional information pertinent to the veteran population. For more information, visit the GI Bill® Comparison Tool website.

GI Bill® Accepted:

We are also pleased to accept the GI Bill® for which a copy of the DD214 is required. For further information, please contact Student Financial Services, at 413.565.1256.

Yellow Ribbon Program:

We offer a limited number of Yellow Ribbon Scholarships in the amount of $3,000 which is then matched by the Department of Veterans Affairs. This program is part of the Post-9/11 GI Bill® that helps make higher education more affordable for veterans.

Edith Nourse Rogers Science Technology Engineering Math (STEM) Scholarship

The Edith Nourse Rogers Science Technology Engineering Math (STEM) Scholarship allows eligible Veterans using the Post-9/11 GI Bill or dependents using the Fry Scholarship to get added benefits. This scholarship provides up to 9 months (or $30,000) of benefits for training in high-demand fields. Find out if you’re eligible and how to apply.

VA Scholarships for Students in Medical and Healthcare Fields

The VA offers scholarships to students looking to work in a VA healthcare facility serving our Nation’s Veterans. These scholarships cover many degrees and certifications and can help students extend their benefits to reach the end of their education. Find more information about the different programs by visiting the VA education support website.

Dedicated Certifying Official:

Bay Path University has on staff a dedicated certifying official to guide you in using your military benefits.
