I got an email today about how someone could get assistance and stay in the reserves, here is the program you want if that is the case.


Specialized Training Assistance Program (STRAP)


Stipend program for nurse anesthesia and critical care nurses currently enrolled in accredited programs. Participants receive a monthly stipend, currently over $1,235. Participants incur a 2-year obligation in the Army Reserve for each year or partial year of financial assistance and must serve in a Army Reserve Troop Program Unit, National Army Medical Department Augmentee Detachment, or Individual Augmentee Mobilization Program upon completion of training. Individuals may be eligible, if qualified, to participate in one other Army Reserve incentive program. Must be a U.S. citizen.

Here is the regulation that covers it: www.army.mil/usapa/epubs/pdf/r135_7.pdf
