Excellent resource for programs serving veterans

The GI Bill Comparison tool is a well-designed comprehensive resource to compare the GI benefits coverage for particular colleges.

You can choose if you are veteran, spouse, or child of a veteran, compare colleges, and choose a college based on how far your veteran benefits will cover your tuition and other costs.
