Did you know that the Virginia Department of Veterans Services has a program that may help pay for your dependents to go to school here in Virginia? Well it's true. The Virginia Military Survivors and Dependents Education Program (VMSDEP) provides education benefits to spouses and children of military service members killed, missing in action, taken prisoner, or who have been rated by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs as totally and permanently disabled or at least 90 percent permanently disabled as a result of military service.

Join nearly 2 million former and current members of the US military, just like you.
