Current research shows that 80% of U.S. adults believe that having a two- or four-year degree is crucial to job security and financial success.
The same research shows that an overwhelming majority of Americans don’t believe that quality, affordable education is within their reach. Are you among them?
If you’re like most people, you probably grew up hearing how important a college degree is to your future.
But the price tag was a deal breaker.
Afterall, who wants to spend the next 30 years paying off high-interest loans for a certificate?
We’re not just talking about federal student loans either. When you combine the amount of debt accumulated for tuition, plus books, plus living expenses, plus study material, laptop, printer, and paper…
The average undergraduate student incurs more than $87,000 in debt by the time they graduate. Now, add 15-25% interest on top of that…
And you’re looking at hundreds of thousands in debt over a lifetime.
If that intimidates you, it should.
But don’t lose hope just yet. There is an organization that can help you pursue your dream of earning a degree without taking on soul-crushing loans.
Before I introduce them, let’s talk about your opportunity.
Okay, so let’s put aside the costs for your college degree for now, and let’s talk about your dream.
We all know that the degree isn’t the real goal here. What you really want is probably what most Americans want…a good job that pays well…so you can live a happy life.
Whichever way you define your happiness is up to you. Maybe you want to get married and have kids. Or maybe you want to stay single and carefree. You might want a nice, big house in a safe neighborhood, where you can park your new vehicle without worrying about theft or damage.
Whatever path you choose, one thing is for certain…you need money to pay for it all. And having a college degree can lead to higher-paying jobs, which can lead to a more comfortable lifestyle.
Research shows that, on average, graduates who achieved a 4-year bachelor’s degree earn $36,000 more per year than those with a high school diploma and no college degree.
That’s the kind of money you could be missing out on if you let the costs of a 4-year degree keep you from achieving your goals.
But it doesn’t do much good if your extra income is going to high-interest college debt payments.
So, what if I told you that you could get the degree, which will help you get the high-paying job, which will help you get the lifestyle you want…And you don’t have to pay a dime for tuition?
Introducing the Debt-Free 4-Year Degree. An exclusive offer to members of the Kansas Air National Guard.
That’s right! The Kansas Air National Guard will pay up to 100% of your tuition if you become a member and live in the state of Kansas.
College students have enough on their minds. And finances are one of the biggest stressors.
In fact, a recent study by Lumina-Gallup showed that Cost of Attendance and Emotional Stress are the two main reasons students have stopped going to college in the last five years.
Emotional stress is often linked to financial burdens.
Let the Kansas Air National Guard eliminate one of those burdens. I’ll explain how in a minute.
But first, think about this. You wake up, go to class, listen to a lecture, go home to study, and go to bed. And not one part of your day is spent wondering how you’re going to pay for it all!
You can put all your time, energy, and focus into your studies.
And imagine walking across that stage when your name is called. You take your diploma, shake the dean’s hand, and smile for the camera…knowing you did it all completely free.
But life doesn’t stop at graduation. You have to think beyond college to see the real value of what we’re offering.
Think about landing that first job. You nailed the interview. They’ve sent you an offer with a nice income and benefits package. Not a bad start!
Now, if you were an average student, that income would immediately be cut by a large percentage. Why? Because you’d have to repay your student loan debts.
But as a member of the Kansas Air National Guard, you’re not an average student.
That higher-income salary is all yours!
You see? Being a member of the Kansas Air National Guard sets you up for career success, financial success, and a lifetime of success.
So you may be asking yourself…Why would the Kansas Air National Guard do this for its members?
The answer is simple.
The more our members succeed…the more we succeed.
We have jobs and responsibilities that require extremely intelligent people. If our members didn’t have the education levels necessary to do their jobs, we wouldn’t be able to effectively carry out our missions.
We have jobs and responsibilities that require high levels of focus and dedication. If our members are emotionally distressed because of financial burdens, such as high-interest student loans, then they can’t be there mentally or physically when the nation calls.
We have jobs and responsibilities that require the trust of our fellow Americans. If the American public thinks our members are low-quality derelicts who don’t pay their debts, and don’t seek to better themselves, then we’ll lose their trust and support.
When you’re educated and not financially burdened, you have the knowledge and mental strength to do your job effectively.
It’s a win for you. A win for the Kansas Air National Guard. And a win for the American public!
But it doesn’t stop with tuition assistance. If we’re being honest, there are a lot of organizations that offer to pay for your college.
So what sets us apart from the crowd?
Alright, we’ve figured out how to pay for your college tuition without taking on massive student loans. That by itself is huge!
But we can do even better.
You’ve probably heard of broke college students, right? Well, it’s a real thing.
Most college students experience financial hardships during their college years, especially if they’re full-time students.
And it’s not just the day-to-day living expenses that weigh them down. They have to pay for expensive textbooks, study material, a laptop or tablet, dorm room or apartment, furnishings, clothes…the list goes on and on.
Some of them get a part-time job either on- or off-campus. Those jobs don’t pay much. They offer no benefits. The work is meaningless. And those jobs don’t help the students advance toward their degree.
If anything, those jobs are nothing more than a distraction from earning a degree.
As a member of the Kansas Air National Guard, the opposite is true.
For one, the Kansas Air National Guard pays you even more money for attending college. This is in addition to tuition assistance.
For starters, you’ll have a part-time job where you’ll work just one weekend per month. You’ll be paid based on your rank; most people start out at around $200 per month.
Next, you’ll qualify for the Montgomery GI Bill which pays you $368 per month as long as you’re in school as a full-time student.
Plus, you could qualify for the GI Bill Kicker depending on the job you pick. The GI Bill Kicker pays full-time students $350 a month.
So right off the bat, you could receive more than $900 per month. Just for working one weekend a month and attending college (which you were going to do anyway).
If you want to get another part-time job on top of that, great! But an additional $900 per month would certainly take the pressure off of you.
Don’t you agree?
Speaking of part-time jobs. I mentioned before that many college students will work at part-time jobs just to pay for day-to-day expenses.
Most of the time those jobs don’t even cover that!
So students will take out more loans to cover their expenses. And it just snowballs from there. Unfortunately, they’ll be paying on those loans for the majority of their working years.
And for what? Low pay for doing meaningless work?
As a member of the Kansas Air National Guard, you’ll have a part-time job that pays you over $900 a month as long as you’re a full-time student.
You’ll receive college credits for completing basic training, and more college credits for completing technical training. These are credits you don’t have to pay for.
Actually, it’s quite the opposite. The Kansas Air National Guard PAYS YOU to attend the training and earn these credits.
This advances you toward your end goal: Your College Degree. And it decreases your overall expenses because you’re not paying for those credits.
Plus, you’ll have access to benefits such as low-cost health insurance, dental insurance, and life insurance.
And you’ll be doing meaningful work while serving our nation, state, and community.
Can any other part-time job offer you all of that?
Most people have never heard of the Air National Guard. Which is understandable since we’re a small component of the U.S. Air Force.
Even if someone does know about the Air National Guard, it’s difficult to understand. So let me explain.
The U.S. Air Force is made up of three components. The largest component is called the Regular Air Force, often referred to as Active Duty. The entire Regular Air Force is full-time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They have a 40-hour work schedule and they typically get weekends off, but they can be called into work at any time depending on operational needs.
The other two U.S. Air Force components are reserve components – the Air Force Reserves and the Air National Guard. Most of the Airmen in these components are part-time and work one weekend a month. These components are similar, but the Air National Guard has a few major differences.
Each state and U.S. territory has a National Guard made up of Army and Air units. The state governor is the commander-in-chief of their respective National Guard during stateside operations. The U.S. president is the commander-in-chief of federally activated National Guard personnel during wartime operations.
Unlike the other U.S. Air Force components, the Air National Guard trains, develops, and equips Airmen to be ready for overseas operations during war, and stateside operations during disasters.
Our missions are designed to support and defend our nation, state, and community.
By joining our ranks, you’d truly be part of something unique and rewarding. It’s more than simply trading time for college money.
But don’t just take my word for it.

JaenaMae Haskins joined the Kansas Air National Guard when she graduated high school. Her dad served more than 20 years in the 184th Wing at McConnell Air Force Base, so she knew how rewarding it could be.
The college benefits were what attracted JaenaMae the most.
“In high school, I wanted to go into nursing, and I knew nursing was going to be quite expensive,” she said. “So I joined mainly for the college benefits.”
To her surprise, the Kansas Air National Guard offered much more than money for college.
She chose to be a commander’s support specialist when she joined. She loved the job she picked so much that she switched her college major from nursing and decided to pursue a degree in human resources.
But what does JaenaMae really love about the Kansas Air National Guard?
“The people. I really enjoy the people,” she said.
She plans on making the Kansas Air National Guard a long-term career and climbing her way through the ranks.
JaenaMae graduated with a bachelor’s degree in human resources in 2023. She incurred no debt during her schooling thanks to all the benefits offered by the Kansas Air National Guard.
