Post 9/11 GI Bill: Yellow Ribbon Program

The University of Richmond will provide a maximum award of $5,000 each to up to 25 qualifying students for the 2017–18 school year. This amount will be matched by the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA).

Richmond's Yellow Ribbon Program funds will be awarded to qualifying students on a first-come, first-served basis. To be considered, qualifying students must:

  • Be accepted for enrollment to a degree program or be currently enrolled in a degree program at the University of Richmond; and
  • Submit the Certificate of Eligibility provided to them by the VA to the University of Richmond's School Certifying Official (SCO).

Recipients will be selected based upon the date by which both conditions are met. New applications for the 2017–18 school year will be accepted until January 16, 2018.

We expect to participate at the same level for the 2018-19 school year. New applications for the 2018-19 school year will be accepted until January 14, 2019.
