Yellow Ribbon Program

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 in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate.

Only students who are entitled to the maximum benefit rate (100% benefit) under the Post 9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33) are eligible to receive funding under the Yellow Ribbon Program. Additionally, Yellow Ribbon Program funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis, which means there is the potential for eligible students not to receive funds under this program.

With Marylhurst University's Military Service Scholarship, we are helping bridge the gap between our Veteran students' tuition charges and VA benefits without participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program. Marylhurst offers a Military Service Scholarship to students who are either currently serving on active duty, who have been honorably discharged from active duty in any branch of the United States Armed Forces, or are National Guard & Reserve personnel who have been federally mobilized for more than 30 days for purposes other than training.

Any eligible student can apply for this scholarship, even if a student is also receiving benefits under the Post 9/11 GI Bill.
