We Welcome Active Military, Veterans, and Their Families

If you’re a U.S. military veteran, active-duty service member, serving in the guard or the reserves or a member of a military family, EOU is a great fit for you. In 2021 we were recognized as a Military Friendly ® school with a silver-level distinction and as a Best for Vets school by Military Times. We’re dedicated to providing an exceptional experience and career-ready programs.

EOU has a dedicated military support team that ensures service members, veterans and their families can understand and make the most of the education benefits they so richly deserve. Staff will also help connect you to scholarships, grants, waivers and maximize college credits for your military training if you’re eligible.

Grants and scholarships all have detailed eligibility requirements and varying award amounts. We can help determine if you’re eligible for:

Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grants

Federal grants for children of U.S. military service members who died due to military service in Iraq or Afghanistan after 9/11.

Veterans United Foundation Scholarships

The program’s primary goal is to assist U.S. military service members and their families by awarding $2,000 scholarships to help pay for tuition and books each semester. Up to 20 scholarships are available.

The Darlene Hooley Scholarship for Oregon National Guard and Reserves

Eligible recipients are serving or have served in support of the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT) as part of the Oregon National Guard or in a military reserve component after 9/11. This is a need-based scholarship that awards up to $3,000 per academic year.

Veterans’ Dependent Tuition Waiver

Designed for children of a Purple Heart recipient or the child, spouse or un-remarried surviving spouse of a U.S. military service member who died or is 100% disabled from service, the waiver is a last-dollar award after and applies towards tuition.

We’ll help connect you to the right combination of federal, state and EOU-sponsored benefits that result in you paying the least amount for your education.

Yellow Ribbon

Under the Yellow Ribbon program, degree-granting institutions can fund a percentage of tuition expenses matched by the VA. At Eastern Oregon University, the Yellow Ribbon program covers the cost difference of in-state and out-of-state tuition.

GI Bill®

There are a variety of GI Bill® programs that can be used by veterans, active-duty service members, spouses and dependents. This includes the Post-9/11 GI Bill®, Forever GI Bill®, Montgomery GI Bill®, Veterans’ Educational Assistance Program (VEAP) and more.

Active Duty Military Award

This award covers the remaining tuition after military education benefits have been applied. You must be an active military service member taking 100% online undergraduate coursework.

Tuition Assistance

Active-duty service members may be eligible to utilize Department of Defense Tuition Assistance — it covers tuition expenses up to $250 per credit hour.

Oregon National Guard State Tuition Assistance

Eligible to current Oregon National Guard Members to provide tuition funding at community colleges, public and private universities. A maximum of $208 per credit hour can be awarded.
