Veterans Educational Benefits

Veterans Educational Benefits

The Soma Institute Assists Veterans to Apply for Educational Benefits. The State of Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs has granted a Certificate of Approval to The Soma Institute for its Clinical Massage Therapy Diploma Program.

Soma’s Financial Aid Office assists Veterans to apply for educational benefits using the VONAPP website. The VONAPP website is an official U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) website that enables service members, veterans and their beneficiaries to apply for educational benefits using the Internet. When Veterans use this site to complete and send in an application to the VA, their application will be sent directly to the VA office with jurisdiction over that application. Soma’s Financial Aid Office helps to simplify the application process and will scan and attach supporting documentation to the application in order to expedite processing by the VA.
