Who qualifies for the Supplementary Instruction Allowance of up to $4,100 per child, per school year?

If your family is posted overseas with the Department of State, USAID, Peace Corps, Foreign Commercial Service, Foreign Agricultural Service or CDC, each one of your children may be eligible for up to $4,100, per year in Supplementary Instruction Allowance (SIA). If you are with the Department of Defense and your family is posted overseas but your children DO NOT attend a DoD school, your children may be eligible for up to $4,100, per year in Supplementary Instruction Allowance (SIA).   Very few families actually take advantage of this benefit. Find out if your family is eligible today!

 

 

What does the Supplementary Instruction Allowance (SIA) Cover?

Full details are in the DSSR 276.9, but here’s a quick summary of what’s covered:

  • U.S. History, American Literature, Computer Science (Coding and Robotics) and Civics courses: Applicable when the child’s school at post does not offer academic subjects generally offered by public schools in the U.S., such as U.S. history, civics, American Literature, computers, English grammar, AP or IB Courses.
  • Foreign Language Learning: Applicable when the child’s school at post offers its curriculum in a foreign language which the child does not know well enough for progress in the curriculum.

Also, when the child’s school at post documents that a child returning to post following authorized/ordered departure/evacuation requires additional instruction to successfully complete the current school year.
