Veterans Preference

Did you know that Veterans have the opportunity to "earn and learn" in a recognized apprenticeship, and may receive GI Bill Educational Benefits?

Eligible Veterans can use GI Bill Educational Benefits for training and/or education. Recognized apprenticeship programs allow Veterans to learn a trade through an apprenticeship, and use the GI Bill benefits to receive a tax-free monthly stipend. The Post-9/11 GI Bill provides a stipend that is the equivalent of the Monthly Housing Allowance (MHA) of an E-5 with dependents (varies by employer location), and is paid in addition to the wages earned as an apprentice. Veterans continue to receive a stipend for every month of their apprenticeship. After six months of a Veteran’s apprenticeship, the stipend is gradually reduced – and is offset by progressive wage increases. In addition, many recognized apprenticeships have some classroom training, and apprentices can receive $83 per month for books and supplies.
