Scholarship Name: Marine Gunnery Sergeant John David Fry Scholarship

 

Public Law 111-32, the Marine Gunnery Sergeant John David Fry Scholarship, amends the Post-9/11 GI Bill (chapter 33) to include the children of service members who die in the line of duty after September 10, 2001.  The benefit is effective August 1, 2009; the same day the Post-9/11 GI Bill takes effect.

 

Eligible children attending school may receive:

  • Full tuition and fees paid directly to the school for all public school in-state students.  For those attending private or foreign schools, benefits are capped at a statutory minimum amount per academic year.

  • A monthly housing allowance

  • A stipend for books and supplies

Who is eligible?  Children of active duty members of the Armed Forces who have died in the line of duty on or after September 11, 2001 are eligible for this benefit.  A child may be married or over the age of 23 and still be eligible.

 

Eligible children:

  • Are entitled to 36 months of benefits at the 100% level
  • May use the benefit until his or her 33rd birthday
  • Are not eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program

Rules for eligible children serving, or who have served, in the Armed Forces:

  • If the child is eligible under the Montgomery GI Bill Active Duty, Montgomery GI Bill Selected Reserve, and/or the Reserve Educational Assistance Program (REAP), he or she must relinquish eligibility under one of those programs to receive benefits under Post-9/11 GI Bill.
  • A child's character of discharge from his or her own service does not impact eligibility resulting from the line of duty death of a parent.
  • A child on active duty will receive benefits at the active duty benefit rate.
  • A child may qualify for up to 36 months of benefits under the Fry Scholarship Program, and possibly another 36 months of benefits of the Post 9/11 GI Bill based on their own service.  An individual may also receive additional entitlement if another parent transfers entitlement to the individual.

Children who have used or wish to use entitlement under Dependents' Educational Assistance (DEA):

  • If a child is eligible for the Fry Scholarship, he or she may be eligible for VA's Dependents' Educational Assistance Program (DEA).  Although the benefits cannot be used at the same time, a child may be eligible for up to 48 months of benefits between the two programs. 

Find out more about DEA at http://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill/survivor_dependent_assistance.asp

 

How to apply:

Go to VA's website, http://benefits.va.gov/gibill and click on "Apply for Benefits."  Paper versions of the form (VA Form 22-5490) may also be printed.  A parent or guardian must sign the application if the child is under age 18.
