Yellow Ribbon Program
Columbia Law School is delighted to participate in the Department of Veterans Affairs Yellow Ribbon Program. The Yellow Ribbon Program is a part of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008 and provides education benefits to military veterans who have served on active duty since September 11, 2001.
During the 2018-2019 academic year, Columbia Law School will contribute up to a maximum of $30,000 (to be matched by the VA) for qualifying post-9/11 veterans. The maximum number of enrolling veterans who may receive Yellow Ribbon benefits from Columbia Law School for the 2018-2019 academic year is unlimited. Students who choose to receive the Yellow Ribbon benefits will waive their eligibility for Columbia Law School aid.
Please note that information regarding the 2019-2020 academic year Yellow Ribbon Program will be announced in the spring of 2019.
More details and eligibility guidelines for Post-9/11 benefits, including the Yellow Ribbon Program, may be found at the websites provided above. Veterans may also contact the VA directly at 1-888-GIBILL1 (442-4551).
