As we celebrated Veterans’ Day, it is easy to forget the price that the family members pay for the veteran’s service to our country. Indiana has a program to help the children of wounded or deceased veterans pursue higher education — a fee exemption for children of veterans, which is defined at I.C. 21-14-4. The tuition and fees for a state institution would be waived, in whole or part, for eligible children.
Usually to be eligible, the child’s parent must have received a Purple Heart or suffered a service-connected disability or death, as determined by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
