Yellow Ribbon Program

The University of Georgia Graduate School is proud to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program, a provision of the law which created the Post-9/11 GI Bill. The Yellow Ribbon program allows institutions of higher learning to make additional funds available to fund tuition and fee expenses that exceed the tuition and fees covered by the Post-9/11 GI Bill. Under the program, the Department of Veterans Affairs matches school aid contributions made to eligible veterans.  The Graduate School has allocated funds for five annual scholarships at $5,000 each.  This $5,000 will then be matched by the Department of Veterans Affairs for a total of $10,000 per academic year.
