If you are using the G.I. Bill to attend an institution of higher learning, you can also use your Education Award. This is a change that went into effect with the passage of the Serve America Act and not all financial aid offices might be aware of it. (If this happens to be your case, ask the financial aid office to take a look at the law.)
Being able to use the G.I. Bill and your award together can go a long way toward funding your education. You might want to consider using your award to buy school gear that falls under "Cost of Attendance" (such as a computer).
