Eligibility: The Veteran must have entered service as a Wisconsin resident and the benefit recipient must reside in Wisconsin. Character of service and active duty service requirements apply. For Veterans, there is no post-service time limitation (such as the federal Montgomery G.I. Bill 10-year delimiting date) on the use of the benefit. The Veteran may attend full- or part-time. The benefit may be used for continuing education, or for study at the undergraduate or graduate level.
