The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences is a participant 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. Brandeis has pledged to provide five scholarships for the 2016-2017 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 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.
