Children of eligible veterans may be qualified for financial assistance to help them pursue higher education, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs.

The DMVA’s Educational Gratuity Program provides financial assistance to children of honorably discharged veterans who have service-connected disabilities and served during periods of war or armed conflict, or children of veterans who died in service during a period of war or armed conflict.

The eligible child must be between the ages of 16 and 23; must be living within Pennsylvania five years prior to application; and must attend a school within the state.

All applicants must demonstrate a financial need.

Payments will not exceed $500 per term or semester per qualified child to each approved educational institution over a total of eight terms or semesters.

For more information about the program’s criteria, eligibility and needed documentation, visit the Educational Gratuity Program page on DMVA’s website,
