An Overview Of Troops To Teachers (TTT)

Troops To Teachers was created in 1993 to help service members, military retirees and other veterans gain education and start new careers as kindergarten through 12th grade teachers in public schools, charter schools, and Bureau of Indian Education schools.

The general idea is for those leaving military service to get assistance to accomplish these goals, but in order to get financial aid from the program the applicant must start before retiring or separating from military service.

Program Overview

The Troops to Teachers (TTT) program helps service members and veterans become certified and employed as teachers in K-12 schools.

The program was reauthorized on December 27, 2021, via the FY22 National Defense Authorization Act, after being canceled on October 1, 2020.

The Defense Department (DoD) is currently reviewing requirements for the program and determining funding levels. For more information, please:
