This educational funding is for Florida National Guard soldiers and airmen. The Educational Dollars for Duty (EDD) program provides up to 100% public tuition for the period of the Guard member's service once he or she becomes eligible, and as long as funding is available. Funds can be used toward a technical certificate, associates, baccalaureate or master's degree. Unlike Federal Tuition Assistance (FTA), EDD pays the entire semester hour rate for tuition at all accredited learning institutions with "brick and mortar" locations in Florida. Visit the Florida National Guard website for more details.
