Yellow Ribbon Program

The University of Dayton is proud to be a participant in the Yellow Ribbon Program beginning with the 2011-2012 academic year. 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 (degree granting institutions) 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 within the veteran’s state of residence.

Yellow Ribbon participants at the University of Dayton will receive an annual award in the amount listed below. All University gift-aid, such as scholarships and/or grants awarded to the student, will be included in satisfying the award amount.*

  • 2018-2019 Award Amounts

  • 50 Undergraduate Students: Awards up to $10,000 each

    • 20 Graduate Students: Awards up to $5,000 each
    • 20 School of Law Students: Awards up to $5,000 each (previously $4,000)
    • Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. For the application and more information regarding this and other veteran services, we encourage you to visit the Veterans Services website.

* Please note: The Yellow Ribbon award from the University may reduce other scholarships that you have previously been awarded by the University of Dayton.
