Chapter 33 Fry Scholarship-Post 9/11 GI Bill

Recipients may qualify to receive payment of tuition and fees, a monthly housing allowance, and a book stipend. A recipient’s benefit amount is affected by their rate of pursuit (number of credit hours being taken divided by the number of credit hours considered to be full-time). Click here to view the VA Enrollment Requirements. Recipients can receive up to 36 months of benefits.
 
Tuition and fee payments are paid directly to UHCL applied as a third party payment to the student’s billing account.
 
Monthly Housing payments are made directly to the student, not to the school. Benefits are paid in arrears (after the training period). For example, a student receives payment for August at the beginning of September. Based on the Department of Defense (DoD) Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) rate for E-5’s with dependents. Amount varies annually. Recipients must have a rate of pursuit of at least 50% to receive the monthly housing allowance. Students enrolled in only distance learning or online courses are only eligible for a monthly housing allowance equal to 50% of the national average of all Basic Allowances for Housing. Payments are prorated for any partial months of attendance (ex. August and December). Payment amounts do not include enrollment break periods (ex. Winter and Summer break).
 
Book Stipends are paid each semester directly to the student, not to the school. There is a $41.67 per credit hour up to 24 hours in a single academic year or $1,000 max amount. A lump sum payment is made each semester. Prorated based upon the percentage of benefit awarded.
