Through the Army Vocational/Technical (AVOTEC) Soldier Program, all active duty Soldiers, National Guard and Army Reserve Soldiers on extended active duty, as well as Wounded Warriors, are eligible for up to $4,500 in "free money" to be applied to training in high demand technical and trade career fields. There is no obligation for additional service, you don't have to pay the money back and you can leave the Army before the program is finished. However, a Soldier must enroll prior to leaving active duty. The Army pays the tuition directly to the learning institution. No paying up front and waiting for reimbursement. Soldiers can select a program from the approved schools and programs found on the AVOTEC website.
