POST 9/11 G.I. BILL AND YELLOW RIBBON PROGRAMS FOR U.S. VETERANS
The Lally School at Rensselaer is one of more than 500 universities participating in the new Post 9/11 GI Bill, created to make resources available to military veterans and their dependents to attend college and graduate school. Under the new GI Bill, service members who have served three years on active duty since September 11, 2001 can receive benefits to cover the costs of a four-year education up to the level of the most expensive in-state public institution, along with a stipend for housing, books, and expenses.
To help cover any remaining tuition or fees, the Yellow Ribbon Program, a provision of the new GI Bill, helps qualified applicants receive an additional designated scholarship from participating colleges and universities that will be matched by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. At Rensselaer, qualified applicants will be able to attend the university at little or no cost. The Institute will waive application fees and expedite the application process for veterans, and provide them with notification of financial aid awards at the same time as they receive admissions decisions.
More information regarding Financial Aid for U.S. veterans at Rensselaer is available at: http://www.gibill.va.gov.
