The U.S. Armed Forces offer education benefits, including up to $65,000 to enlistees for college tuition. Some will even help you repay your federal student loans. In certain cases, you may receive an education first in exchange for a service commitment later.

Scholarships are available through the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps programs at hundreds of colleges in return for serving at least four years of active duty after graduation.
