Yellow Ribbon Program under the Post 9/11 GI Bill

Yellow Ribbon Schools

Yellow Ribbon Agreement
The Yellow Ribbon Program (Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program) is a part of the Post 9/11 GI Bill which allows degree granting institutions to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate. 

Whatever expenses the school opts to contribute, the VA will match.

Under the Yellow Ribbon Program, the Institute of Higher Learning must agree to:

- Provide contributions to eligible individuals who apply for the Yellow Ribbon Program on a first-come first-serve basis, regardless of the rate at which the individual is pursuing training in any given academic year (meaning the school will elect to grant a specific number of yellow ribbon slots, and award those slots first-come, first-serve)

- Provide contributions toward the program on behalf of the individual in the form of a grant or scholarship

- State the dollar amount that will be contributed for each participant during the academic year

- State the maximum number of individuals for whom contributions wil be made in any given academic year

Yellow Ribbon Benefits
Veterans enrolled at a Yellow Ribbon participating institution where the tuition and fees for the school exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition or fees may receive additional funds from both that school and the VA.

Institutions that voluntarily enter into a Yellow Ribbon Agreement with the VA choose the amount of tuition and fees that will be contributed, and the VA will match that amount and issue payment directly to the institution.

YELLOW RIBBON ELIGIBILITY
Only individuals entitled to 100% benefits (>36 months of accumulated post 9/11 service, not including obligated service academy or ROTC time) are eligible to receive yellow ribbon funding.

APPLICATION PROCESS
Each Yellow Ribbon institution establishes their own application procedures for eligible students, the maximum number of students that may participate in the program, and the percent of tuition that will be covered.
