More “Free” Money for College 2: Military Service


Just because I get sick to my stomach at the thought of waking up at 5 a.m. to run an obstacle course, doesn’t mean that the military isn’t a good option for YOU. There are many benefits that can be gained from enlisting in a branch of the U.S. Armed Forces, like job training, free travel, and the power trip you’ll get from brandishing a huge gun. One of the best benefits for an education-minded person like you is Tuition Assistance (TA). In gratitude for your loyal service to your country, the military will foot (most of) the bill for your education during or after your tour of duty. In addition, being a military veteran will make you eligible to apply for even more scholarships than before, along with other educational programs such as college loan repayment. Best of all, they’ll teach you discipline! Discipline is a very good thing to learn before heading off to college. The downsides of the military are bad food and a greater possibility of being shot than you would have staying home (depending on your home town, of course). Find out more at
