The Yellow Ribbon Program: What You Need to Know

Posted on March 02, 2017  in  [ GCU Experience ]

Veterans work hard and sacrifice for the good of the country and their fellow man. Giving back to veterans whenever possible is one of the best ways to show thanks for all of their work as well as their sacrifices. If you are a veteran who is interested in attending school, you should learn about the Yellow Ribbon Program.

What is the Yellow Ribbon Program?

Veterans should look into the Yellow Ribbon Program before or immediately after enrolling in school. No matter what areas they study, veterans may be able to participate in this program in order to ease some of the financial burden typically associated with higher education. This program is part of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act, providing funds that veterans can use toward tuition and other costs that come up when attending private institutions.

How can I benefit from the Yellow Ribbon Program?

If you are a veteran and want to pursue higher education, you might be able to benefit from the Yellow Ribbon Program. This program is available for undergraduate, graduate and doctoral program students who qualify. Talking to a military university counselor about the Yellow Ribbon Program can help you learn more about the benefits that might be able to support you during your time in school.

Does GCU participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program?

Here at Grand Canyon University, we take pride in giving back to our veterans. That is why we proudly participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program! We can offer up to $1,000 to all eligible veteran students in our undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs.
