The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program) is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows institutions of higher learning (degree granting institutions) in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed the maximum private tuition allowance of $17,500. The institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses and the VA will match the same amount as the institution. More information at the Yellow Ribbon Program can be found at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
