Post-9/11 GI Bill Yellow Ribbon Program

The Heller School 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. For general information about the program from the Department of Veterans Affairs, visit the GI Bill website.

The maximum award is $18,077.50 per academic year with another $18,077.50 match from the YRP for a total of $36,155 YRP scholarship. The YRP scholarship (including the VA match), combined with Brandeis 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.

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 the Office of Financial Aid. Please direct any questions regarding eligibility for the Yellow Ribbon Program directly to the Department of Veterans Affairs.
