If you’re a veteran, a reservist, or an active duty member of the U.S. Armed Forces who is looking to start a new career or enhance your existing skill set, the Swedish Institute has a number of programs that have been approved to accept Veteran Education Benefits. We work with the Department of Veteran’s Affairs to process all benefits available to advance the education and skills of veterans, active service members, and their spouses and family members.

The Department of Veteran’s Affairs determines eligibility for all veteran and active duty programs including the Post-9/11 GI Bill(R) and the Montgomery GI Bill(R).*

Other VA education and training programs offer various education and training benefits or increased benefits to certain reservists, veterans, and their spouses and dependents:
