What is the Patriot Award? How do I know if I’m eligible?

John Carroll University is a Yellow Ribbon school, and our Patriot Award is available to eligible veterans. This award, combined with the G.I. Bill and VA’s Yellow Ribbon matching funds provide the opportunity for academically qualified veterans to earn a degree with no tuition costs.  To be eligible for the Patriot Award, the veteran must be certified by VA as 100% eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill, must meet University admission requirements, and must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. Receiving the additional funding from the Yellow Ribbon Program and the Patriot Award do not affect your eligibility for other scholarships or grants.
