Pennsylvania National Guard Education Assistance Program Update

The Pennsylvania General Assembly appropriates funds to PHEAA for the Pennsylvania State Grant and other programs. PHEAA has reviewed the actions of the General Assembly and the Governor. We are working to confirm awards and/or disburse funds for the current 2015-16 Academic Year as quickly as possible. Please note that this affects all state and federal programs administered by PHEAA.

Together with the Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, PHEAA administers this tuition assistance program for students who enter into a service commitment with the Pennsylvania National Guard for a period of 6 years.
