VA site gives almost no details about how it actually is given, just how to apply for it. According to the VA site, full time students receive $1,110 a month for 36 months. Now does this mean you only receive it for the 16 weeks you're enrolled for that semester, and you receive no money during the summer months? Or once you sign up do you receive funds 12 months out of the year for 3 full years? Also how is money received, direct deposit or check? And finally that $600 kicker, can it be started at any time or was that a time limited thing when they started offering it? Cause $5400 extra for $600 seems like a good deal.
