Through the Yellow Ribbon Program, a college or university can volunteer to participate (at various levels) with the Department of Veterans Affairs in order to provide additional education funding for student veterans. John Carroll has committed to 100% participation in this program so that eligible veterans can achieve a high quality education at a private university with no cost to them.
- Because we are a Yellow Ribbon partner, the VA agrees to match any institutional funding (scholarships/grants) that the veteran receives from their institution. At John Carroll, this takes the form of the Patriot Award.
- Through this agreement, and fund matching from VA, it is possible for eligible veterans to receive up to 100% coverage of tuition and fees.
- All of the paperwork necessary for this program is done through our Office of Veterans Affairs, so you don’t need to worry about additional forms.
- The Yellow Ribbon Program is available for students at the Undergraduate AND Graduate level.
