Any member of the South Dakota National Guard is, upon compliance with all the requirements for admission and subject to the provisions of § 33-6-7, entitled to a benefit as prescribed by this section and § 33-6-5.3. Any member of the South Dakota National Guard who is enrolled in a program leading toward a graduate degree in any state educational institution under the control and management of the Board of Regents, including institutions or courses not subsidized by the general fund, is entitled to a benefit of one hundred percent of the in-state resident graduate tuition to be paid or otherwise credited by the Board of Regents. However, the state benefit is paid after applying the federal tuition benefit. The total federal and state benefit may not exceed one hundred percent of the tuition cost.
