The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program provides matching funds from the Department of Veterans Affairs as a supplement to the Post 9/11 GI Bill, which pays up to the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition.
If a student enrolls at a Yellow Ribbon participating institution and the tuition and fees exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition, additional funds may be available for their education program without an additional charge to their entitlement.
These additional funds give eligible veterans access to undergraduate and graduate programs at private universities that were not previously available. The program became effective August 1, 2009.
Individuals entitled to the maximum benefit rate may receive this funding. You may be eligible if you:
There is no minimum number of credit hours required for participation and awards will continue in subsequent years in which the student maintains satisfactory progress, conduct and attendance.
Step 1: If eligible, students should apply for benefits under the Post – 9/11 GI Bill with the Department of Veteran Affairs.
Step 2: Apply online for admission to Trinity Lutheran College.
Step 3: Upon acceptance to Trinity, forward your Certificate of Eligibility to the Financial Aid Office to be considered for the Yellow Ribbon Program.
