Battalion Education Services Specialist (ESS)
One of the most important benefits you can receive as a Soldier is money to further your education. While skills training in the Army is always a priority, so is encouraging Soldiers-and their family members-to continue their education.
Let the Army Help Pay for College
The Army provides generous education benefits. As a Soldier, you can take advantage of Tuition Assistance, the Montgomery GI Bill® and the Army College Fund, or Post 9-11 GI Bill® to pay for your college education. Depending on how long you've been in the Army, or whether or plan to re-enlist, you and your family members may be eligible for well over $100,000 in college benefits!
