The Yellow Ribbon Program
The Yellow Ribbon Program allows vets to receive post 9/11 benefits. Member institutions work with the VA to choose the amount of tuition and fees that will be covered; the VA will match the amount. Qualified veterans pay Vermont resident tuition rates and fees will be covered.
- Veterans are eligible for these resources if they are offered the maximum benefit rate for the post 9/11 GI bill. (Active duty service members and their spouses are not eligible for these benefits.)
- You are eligible under this program if you served at least 36 months of active duty after September 10, 2001.
- You are eligible under this program if you were honorably discharged due to an injury related to your service after serving at least thirty days after September 10, 2001.
- Veterans seeking resources from this program can not be active duty service members, or a spouse transferee of an active duty member.
- Member institutions can not offer this benefit to more individuals than stated in their agreement and must submit your enrollment to the VA.
