As a Veteran, you may be eligible for full compensation for education and training, including tuition paid to a barber/beautician school like Salon Success Academy. Administered through the GI Bill or the Post 9/11-GI Bill, benefits may cover career training at non-college-degree institutions that could include:
- Tuition and Fee Payments
- Books and Supplies Stipend
- Monthly Housing Allowance
