WGU is an eligible university for use of the Troops to Teachers program. This joint project of the U.S. Departments of Defense and Education offers stipends up to $5,000 (or a bonus of $10,000) to certain active or retired military personnel, as well as current members of the Reserves or National Guard, who are interested in becoming licensed teachers.
Information and directions can be found at Troops To Teachers (opens new window). Students can check the requirements for the state they are interested in teaching and register for the program online.
