Scholarship coverage

  • tuition fee reduction


The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program is a provision of the Post 9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008.

Applicable programmes


As an undergraduate at New York University, you may receive a combination of veteran’s benefits, Yellow Ribbon benefits, and NYU scholarship that amounts to, but does not exceed, the cost of your tuition and fees.

If you are a graduate student receiving Yellow Ribbon funds, you should check with your school to see if your scholarship or institutional aid eligibility will be affected.

Undergraduate and graduate students receiving Yellow Ribbon funds may find other sources of financial aid, as well, if the total amount being awarded exceeds the cost of attendance.


Yellow Ribbon is a scholarship designed to help military or veteran students supplement their Post 9/11 GI Bill tuition benefits.

To qualify, you must:

  • Have served at total of at least 36 months in active duty after September 10, 2001.
  • Have been honorably discharged from active duty for a service connected disability and have served 30 continuous days after September 10, 2001.
  • Be a dependent eligible for Transfer of Entitlement under the Post-9/11 GI Bill based on a veteran’s service under the eligibility criteria, as described on the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website.
