H.R. 6140 makes students in dual-degree programs of education that include a STEM undergraduate degree eligible for certain scholarships. It also makes postgraduate students enrolled in clinical health care training programs (such as medical residency programs) eligible. Additionally, the bill specifies which applicants should have priority for receiving certain scholarships. Under the Post-9/11 GI Bill, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) pays the tuition for beneficiaries pursuing approved education programs and provides housing allowances. Beneficiaries, including veterans, service members, and their designated dependents, can receive that assistance for up to 36 months. Through the Edith Nourse Rogers STEM Scholarship, the department may provide up to nine additional months of those benefits to students who pursue qualified undergraduate degrees in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, health care, or other fields approved by VA.
