Use This Tool to Find Exactly Where You Can Use Your GI Bill to Study a Discipline of Your Choice

Posted By ROA National Staff, Thursday, February 1, 2018

ROA’s executive director, Jeff Phillips, had a problem: he still has some Montgomery GI Bill money and wants to use it on culinary training so he can open a food truck offering classic French cuisine (OK, maybe not a food truck, maybe just cook more delicious meals for friends).

 

But how does Jeff find institutions that provide GI Bill friendly (in this case culinary) education of any type anywhere they’re offered? With such a cool capability, he could shop around for a specific discipline by location, type of culinary degree or certificate, program duration, cost, etc.

 

The answer is on this website: www.vets.gov/gi-bill-comparison-tool. Go to the homepage bottom and download the Excel file at "Download Data on All Schools (Excel)"; this file has a huge amount of info. Once it’s open, click on the spreadsheet tab named Comparison_Tool_Data_Full. Then click on the Excel toolbar upper left, “Home.” Then click on “Find & Select” at far right, in the Excel toolbar “Editing” section.

 

You will now have a scroll-down menu; click “Find.” You will now have a “Find and Replace” window – just enter a key word and hit Find Next.” Jeff entered the word, Culinary. With each click of “Find Next” a culinary program was selected, from OJT to degree programs.

 

As any French chef would say, “Magnifique!”
