Wisconsin Veteran's Grant for Private Non-Profit Schools
Awards under this program are made to Wisconsin residents who are enrolled in a bachelor’s or graduate degree program at a WI Association of Independent Colleges and Universities approved school. Students must hold a valid verified veteran status with the Department of Veterans Affairs office and apply to the payment of tuition for educational assistance programs.
The amount of a grant for a student for a semester/session must equal the lesser of $2000 or 50% of the difference from the amount of tuition charged by the private nonprofit institution, and the amount of tuition paid for the student under specified federal veteran educational assistance programs. The bill limits the grants for a student for period of no more than 128 credits, or 8 semesters/sessions, whichever is longer. However, if a student previously received veteran related tuition remissions from the UW Systems or Technical college, that limit is reduced by the number of credits, semesters/sessions for which the student received the tuition remissions previously./p>
