A Short History of the GI Bill

President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Statement on Signing the G.I. Bill®
June 22, 1944

“This bill, which I have signed today, gives servicemen and women the opportunity of resuming their
education or technical training after discharge, or of taking a refresher or retrainer course.”

Before the war (World War II), college and homeownership were, for the most part, unreachable
dreams for the average American. Thanks to the GI Bill®, millions who would have flooded the job market
instead opted for education. In the peak year of 1947, Veterans accounted for 49 percent of college
admissions. By the time the original GI Bill® ended on July 25, 1956, 7.8 million of 16 million World War II
Veterans had participated in an education or training program.

In 2011, the GI Bill® was updated once again. The new law gives Veterans with active duty service on, or
after, Sept. 11 2001, enhanced educational benefits that cover more educational expenses and provide a
living allowance during their training.
