Know Your Education Benefits

While you move through your grief, it is common to experience a shift in occupational desires or goals. As a result, you may choose to make some changes which set you up for the life you want to live. If one of your new goals includes pursuing education, TAPS Education Support Services is here to help.

TAPS Education Support Services serves as a guide to scholarship information and benefits resources for military survivors. Our education support coordinators can help explain benefits, work with you to align resources and education goals, provide talking points to schools, colleges, and universities, and help you go confidently into the next phase of your life.

Your education is part of your loved one’s legacy for you and we want you to grow into it with as much peace of mind as possible.
