Know Your Education Benefits
Please note this program is specifically designed for survivors grieving the death of a military loved one.
While 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.

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.
