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 a minimum of five undergraduate scholarships per academic year.

Students who qualify for the Post-9/11 GI Bill Yellow Ribbon Program may receive GI Bill and YR benefits up to the cost of tuition and mandatory fees, including health insurance. These benefits cannot be used for housing, meals, travel, etc. Eligible students receive up to the maximum GI Bill annual limit first; any remaining tuition and fee charges are split evenly between VA and Brandeis Yellow Ribbon funds.

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.
