Recent changes include:
Fry and DEA Eligibility : If you are eligible for both Fry Scholarship and DEA (Dependents Educational Assistance), you will be required to make an irrevocable election between the two programs when you apply. Dependents are not eligible to receive both DEA and the Fry Scholarship based on the same event (like a Service member dying in the line of duty) unless they are a Child whose parent died prior to August 1, 2011. A Child of a parent who died prior to August 1, 2011 may still be eligible for both benefits but they may only use one program at a time and combined benefits are capped at a total of 81 months of full-time training. In this situation the two benefit programs cannot be used concurrently.
Fry and Yellow Ribbon : Recipients of the Fry Scholarship may use the Yellow Ribbon Program.
