NYU School of Law is proud to participate in the Yellow Ribbon program. Yellow Ribbon is a part of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008 and provides education benefits to military veterans who have served on active duty since Sept. 11, 2001.
During the 2016-17 academic year, NYU School of Law will contribute up to a maximum of $20,000 (for each Yellow Ribbon eligible veteran) to be matched by the VA. In order for a student to be eligible to receive Yellow Ribbon funds from NYU School of Law, the student must be enrolled full-time at the School of Law and the VA must provide their match. Only veterans entitled to the maximum GI-Bill benefit rate (100%, based on service requirements) or their designated transferees may receive Yellow Ribbon funding. There is no maximum number of enrolling veterans who may receive Yellow Ribbon benefits from NYU School of Law. Note: All other VA eligibility guidelines will also apply to NYU's Yellow Ribbon Program.
More details and eligibility guidelines for Post-9/11 benefits, including Yellow Ribbon, may be found at www.gibill.va.gov under Education Benefits. Veterans may also contact the VA directly at 1-888-GIBILL1 (442-4551).
If you are an eligible veteran and enrolled (or will enroll) at NYU School of Law, please contact Student Financial Services at firstname.lastname@example.org to notify us of your interest in the program. We will ask you to submit a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility (COE) to Student Financial Services prior to the start of the academic year in order to process your Yellow Ribbon benefit.
