Post 9/11 GI Bill® Yellow Ribbon Program

The Brandeis University Undergraduate Arts and Sciences participates in the Post-9/11 GI Bill® Yellow Ribbon Program (YRP). 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. Learn more about the program from the Veteran's Administration.

Brandeis has pledged to provide five undergraduate scholarships per academic year. 

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 gift 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.

Application Process

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 your financial aid advisor in the Office of Student Financial Services.

 Please direct any questions regarding eligibility for the Yellow Ribbon Program directly to the Veterans Administration.
