Arkansas Army National Guard Education and Incentives
Membership in the Arkansas National Guard provides numerous educational benefits as well as incentives including loan repayments and bonuses to organizational members. The Arkansas National Guard Education and Incentives Branch (EIB) provides statewide support to assist Soldiers and Airmen with receipt of these benefits and pursuit of their personal and professional career goals. We administer a number of programs designed to help you pursue professional certificates, credentials, licensures, and degrees including Associate’s, Baccalaureate, and Master’s level programs.
In addition to the specialized training and experience you’ll gain as a member of the military, our programs can help achieve your personal and professional career goals at a greatly reduced or even eliminated out of pocket cost.
The Education & Incentives Branch processes incentives payments and provides educational/academic services to Soldiers in order to strengthen their individual leadership skills, improve personal as well as professional self development, and ensure the accountable fulfillment of the associated obligations promised upon entry/retention in the Arkansas National Guard.
