Reserve Education Assistance Program

Students studying

The Reserve Education Assistance Program (PDF) (REAP, Chapter 1607 of title 10, US Code) is a new education program that provides up to 36 months of education benefits to members of the Selected Reserves, Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) and National Guard who are called or ordered to active service in response to a war or national emergency, as declared by the President or Congress.


Eligib​ility will be determined by the Department of Defense (DoD) or Department of Homeland Security (DHS), as appropriate. Generally, a member of a Reserve component who serves on active duty on or after Sept. 11, 2001, under title 10, US Code, for at least 90 consecutive days under a contingency operation is eligible for REAP. There is no specific time frame to use REAP; however, your eligibility generally ends when you leave the Selected Reserve.

National Guard members are eligible if there active service extends for 90 consecutive days or more and their service is:

  • Authorized under section 502(F), title 32, US Code
  • Authorized by the President or Secretary of Defense for a national emergency, and
  • Supported by federal funds
