FULL AND PARTIAL SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE FOR VETERANS!

At ETI, we are dedicated to our veterans and reservists, and we recognize the great contributions they make to our society.

Some of our programs have been approved by the New York State approving agency for the training of veterans and other eligible persons under the Post-9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33). ETI provides training, funded by Veterans Affairs. Based on eligibility, the VA can pay up to 100% of the student’s tuition. Learn more about available benefits for veterans by contacting the VA at (888) 442-4551, or www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.

Veterans may also seek funding under the Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E) (Chapter 31) program, located at 245 W. Houston Street, New York, NY 10014. This program assists Veterans with service-connected disabilities to prepare for, find, and keep suitable jobs. For more information, visit www.benefits.va.gov/vocrehab/index.asp, or call (800) 827-1000.

The Veterans of Foreign Wars offers eligible veterans the VFW’s Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship, which provides service members and veterans up to $5,000 per semester in financial assistance they need to complete their educational goals without incurring excessive student loan debt. Get more details at https://www.vfw.org/assistance/student-veterans-support.

ETI will refund the unused portion of prepaid tuition and fees on a pro-rata basis. The exact proration will be determined on the ratio of the number of days of instruction completed by the student to the total number of instructional days in the course. Any amount in excess of $10.00 for an enrollment fee or registration fee will also be prorated.
