Veterans may be able to use their benefits to help fund their study abroad experience. If you are planning to use your Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits or your Wisconsin GI Bill benefits to assist in payment of your study abroad program, please meet with Miranda Cross-Schindler, the Veterans Benefits Coordinator, before you apply to a program, in order to find one that fits the requirements of the VA and your study abroad goals.  Miranda can be contacted at 715-836-5212, or via e-mail at
