The book stipend will help cover the cost of books, supplies, equipment and other educational fees. Veterans will receive a lump sum payment accompanying the living allowance for the first month of each quarter, semester or term. The payment will be $41.67 for every credit enrolled, but no more than $1,000 per calendar year. (e.g., a student enrolled in 12 units will receive $500 for that academic term).

Veterans who have served less than three years on active duty since September 10, 2001 qualify for a percentage of the book stipend under Post-9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33). See details under the eligibility requirements for Active Duty or National Guard/Reserves.
