The 41-year-old ex-Air Force engineer was quickly running out of her Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits, and even though she has a full-time job at an engineering firm, she was having trouble paying her tuition.

UMUC, which will change its name to University of Maryland Global Campus effective July 1, is far from the only university to have this sort of fund devoted to veterans in need of a little extra financial help. Many schools have created a veteran emergency fund to give veterans help beyond just tuition support, including paying their bills, child care or even groceries.
