Florida makes it easy for veterans to get the education and training they need to develop a career. As part of the Florida GI Bill, Florida waives out-of-state tuition fees for all honorably discharged veterans. Plus, the undergraduate tuition is waived for state universities, community colleges, and career and technical schools for recipients of the Purple Heart. This makes Florida a top location for you to further your education. Find out more about the benefits of further education in Florida.
The skills you learned in the military like discipline, attention to detail and leadership directly correlate to being a successful entrepreneur. Veterans Florida sponsors a world-class entrepreneurship program just for veterans. We’ve joined forces with top Florida universities and colleges to deliver the Veterans Florida Entrepreneurship Program, a training initiative for vets seeking to start their own business. As part of the program, you’ll gain access to small business development resources at no extra cost.
