Post 9/11 GI Bill Yellow Ribbon Program
The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences will participate in the Post-9/11 GI Bill Yellow Ribbon Program (YRP) for the 2012-2013 academic year. This award is a supplement to Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits and signifies the University's commitment to support veterans who are pursuing higher education. For general information about the program go to the Veteran's Administration.
Brandeis has pledged to provide five scholarships for 2012-2013.
The YRP scholarship (including the VA match), combined with Brandeis grants and scholarships, federal aid and other estimated financial assistance, cannot exceed the cost of attendance and Brandeis scholarship aid may be adjusted. YRP recipients must remain in good academic standing while receiving the award. Recipients will be eligible to receive the award in subsequent years, provided that Brandeis remains a participant in the YRP.
Current students or prospective students who have been offered admission are eligible to apply. The application requires submission of a copy of your certificate of eligibility from the VA to Peggy Higgins, Associate Dean, Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Please direct any questions regarding eligibility for the Yellow Ribbon Program directly to the Veterans Administration.
