Enacted in 1944, the G.I. Bill provides men and women who serve the United States armed forces with financial support for education and housing. The bill creates an incentive for joining the military and provides a reward for soldiers who complete their duty in the form of education and career training for their post-military career. The G.I. Bill provides assistance for undergraduate and graduate degree programs both in the United States and abroad, including these schools in Germany.
