Yellow Ribbon Program

What is the Yellow Ribbon Program?

 

Belmont University has voluntarily elected to fund a portion of your undergraduate or graduate tuition and fees that are over and above the amount covered under the Chapter 33 Post-9/11 GI-Bill benefits.


For the 2013-2014 academic year, Belmont is committed to extend Yellow Ribbon Program funds to qualified undergraduate and graduate students. Belmont University and the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs each will pay up to 50% of unmet tuition and mandatory fees for eligible recipients as deemed by the Post-9/11 GI-Bill.

Yellow Ribbon benefits do not cover study abroad unless it is a mandatory requirement to earn the degree.
