Hello, I’m a Navy spouse planning to use 2 years of my husband’s GI Bill for PA school. Unfortunately there are no public PA schools where my husband is stationed, so the GI Bill is only going to cover about half of my tuition. All schools I’m applying to participate in the Yellow Ribbon program, but I’ve read that the Yellow Ribbon program isn’t available to active duty service members or their spouses, which seems kind of backwards to me. Does anyone have experience with this?
FYI for my prior service colleagues: I’m in the process of finalizing, but it appears you can use 100% Institution of Higher Learning GI Bill benefits (not the “apprenticeship” 80% and tapering pay) during residency. I’m choosing to use the Montgomery GI Bill since it gives more money than the BAH of post 9/11 for my area, and with no tuition it’s all money in my pocket. Really going to help make up for that income loss. Note: HPSP and those who direct commission with loan repayment cannot use the Montogomery GI Bill, only HSCP recipients who paid in. Another reason HSCP is better, in my opinion.
