Best Military Student Resource, People's Choice Awards

Throughout September and October, conducted its first-ever Education Resources People's Choice Awards, in which we sought the best sites on the Internet for helping people get an education. The nominees in the Military Student Resources category are designed to help lifelong learners who want to go back and earn a degree after spending time serving our country. Which site did our readers think best lived up to its calling?


Launched in 1999 as a resource to keep America's many servicemen and women 'connected and informed,' currently operates under the umbrella of the popular job website Monster. As such, much of the site focuses on helping veterans find careers, obtain financial aid and generally enjoy an easier readjustment to post-service civilian life.

Of course, part of that readjustment includes education. As such, contains a sizable section dedicated to helping veterans get a college education. The site's blog hosts articles like '5 Steps to Getting Your Degree' and '10 Top FAQs for GI Bill 2.0,' thus providing indispensable, practical knowledge for the college-bound. It also offers a scholarship finder, giving veterans even more options to help finance an expensive college education, as well as links to ways for veterans to actually earn college credit for their service (like the DANTES tests). All-in-all, if you're a veteran looking to go back to school,'s a fantastic resource, and it proved to be our readers' favorite.

Finalist:'s a privately run, independent company that aims to report unbiased information relating to the world of military operations around the globe. In keeping with its mission, its education section offers a wealth of college information - all you've got to do is enter your zip code, desired field of study and type of degree you want and let their search engine find schools to help you achieve your desired outcome. Many of the institutions listed on the site offer distance-learning programs as well, so you can work on your degree even while you're away from home.

Finalist: GoArmyEd
