TAMPA, Fla., Dec. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. News & World Report-ranked Florida Tech recently announced it will be hosting a webinar for military personnel and veterans on December 11, 2013. This informative webinar begins at 8:00 p.m. EST and will be co-presented by Dr. Jeffery Cerny, Site Director at Eglin Center and Greg Osborne, Commander, U.S. Navy (Ret) and Military Liaison for University Alliance.

The webinar will provide servicemembers information on options for funding their education, including:

  • Department of Defense Voluntary Education (VOLED) Tuition Assistance
  • Post-9/11 GI Bill
  • Montgomery GI Bill

The webinar is part of Florida Tech University Online's ongoing efforts to support servicemembers in advancing their education. Other options include special military pricing, participation in government-funded programs to make college more affordable for military veterans, and participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program. The webinar will clarify what resources are available and how to apply for benefits.

"As a retired member of the Armed Services, I know that the various options for military education benefits may be confusing," said Osborne. "We're pleased to present this informative webinar so that servicemembers can understand how they can fund their education and get the knowledge and skills needed to transition to civilian life, build upon their military training and enhance their career opportunities."
