VA Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E) Work-Study at Boise State University

All Veterans with a 10% or higher service-connected disability rating are encouraged to apply for VA Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E) benefits. VR&E benefits can often provide benefits beyond what the GI Bill® provides. Typical benefits for a student attending a college or university include: tuition, fees, books, parking permit, supplies, computer, medical, dental, job placement, and other benefits that help the student veteran transition to a suitable civilian career.

To apply for VR&E benefits follow the instructions on this link: VA Vocational Rehabilitation & Employment
