Maine Veterans Dependents Educational Benefits

The Veterans Dependents Benefits Program is administered by the Bureau of Maine Veterans' Services under the provisions of MRSA 37-B, Chapter 7, Section 505(2).



Qualifying dependents are eligible for tuition waiver benefits as defined in Title 37B, Chapter 7, Section 505(2) of the State of Maine Statutes. Dependents under this program must attend a State of Maine state-supported postsecondary vocational school or institution of collegiate grade.

Eligibility Requirements:
1. "Child" means a child whose mother or father is or was a veteran and the child:
a. Is at least 16 years of age;
b. Has graduated from high school; and
c. Enrolled in a degree program prior to turning age 22 and has not reached the
age of 26 at the time of application.

NOTE: The exception to this age limit is if the child is between the ages of 22-25 and had been unable to enroll in a degree program before the age of 22 due to service in the United States Armed Forces, then the child of the veteran may apply for this benefit until he/she reaches age 26.
