The Army Graduate Student Program.
The Army Graduate Student Program is a financial assistance program sponsored by the Army to help college graduates who are qualified dietitians, physical therapists, and occupational therapists complete the requirements for a master's degree in their specialties. Dietitians selected for this program may do graduate work for a master's degree in foods and nutrition or institutional management. Physical and occupational therapists may do graduate work in their specialties, or in a field closely allied to their specialty. Selected applicants are commissioned Army officers and receive pay and allowances of the grade they hold while attending the graduate school of their choice. In addition, they receive free medical care, dental care, and hospitalization. Tuition and all other expenses are the responsibility of the graduate student. All requirements for the master's degree must be completed within 2 years from the date of entry into this program, and participants must remain on active duty in the Army for 24 or 36 months after receiving their master's degree depending on the amount of time spent in the program.
