The US Army's Reserve Education Assistance Program (REAP) was established to provide Reserve soldiers called up on active service with up to 36 months of educational assistance.
How do I qualify for REAP
In order to obtain the benefits of REAP you must have served at least 90 days on active duty, either in support of combat operations or during a national emergency. If you sustain injuries before your 90 days is completed, you are also eligible.

The REAP program pays out a percentage of the Montgomery GI Bill benefits based on the amount of time you spend in active service.
