Based on your term of service, you will receive an education award you can use to pay for college tuition or qualified student loans.The Education Award is not cash. It comes in the form of a voucher that you submit to a college or loan holder. It can be used only to pay for qualified student loans or to pay for the cost of attending a qualified college or graduate school.
