New York State expands its veteran’s tuition award program

ALBANY – New York has enhanced its veteran’s tuition award program by increasing the maximum tuition award available to New York State’s combat veterans to approximate the cost of undergraduate tuition charged by the State university of New York to New York State veterans. Veteran’s tuition awards will be available for study at both private and public institutions in New York State in approved vocational, undergraduate and graduate programs

Veterans who served in Indochina in the Vietnam War, or who served in the hostilities in the Persian Gulf or Afghanistan, and were discharged under honorable conditions are eligible to receive a veterans’ tuition award. Additionally, individuals who served in the Armed Forces of the United States in hostilities that occurred after Feb. 28, 1961, as evidenced by their receipt of an Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, Navy Expeditionary Medal, or Marine Corps Expeditionary Medal, and were discharged under honorable conditions, may also be eligible.
