Know Your Education Benefits

As you move through your grief, you may choose to make some changes — changes that set you up for the life you want to live. An important change includes education.

TAPS 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.

When you contact the TAPS Education Support Services team, you’ll find they have the expertise and knowledge to answer questions about education benefits and eligibility. 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.

For education assistance, call TAPS Education Support Services at 800-959-TAPS (8277) or email
