NYU is pleased to participate in the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program. The program is a provision of the Post 9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. Yellow Ribbon is a scholarship designed to help students supplement their Post 9/11 GI Bill® tuition benefits.
The table below indicates the maximum Yellow Ribbon awards for the 2016-2017 academic year.
Graduate SPS, Graduate Gallatin, and GSAS limit the number of students who are eligible to receive Yellow Ribbon through their school. Please contact them for eligibility criteria:
Yellow Ribbon recipients should be aware that NYU is committed to our student veterans but must also take into account our limited scholarship funds and the needs of all of our eligible students. Undergraduate students receiving Yellow Ribbon benefits who have also been awarded NYU scholarship may receive combined veteran's benefits, Yellow Ribbon benefits and NYU scholarship up to, but not exceeding, their tuition and fees.
Graduate students who receive Yellow Ribbon funds should check with their Graduate School to determine if their scholarship or institutional aid eligibility will be affected. For both graduate and undergraduate students, the Yellow Ribbon award may affect other types of financial aid, since total financial aid from all sources cannot exceed a student's cost of attendance.
