Yellow Ribbon Program

Once your eligibility for the Yellow Ribbon Program has been confirmed, if your tuition charges exceed the amount of the national cap, the Yellow Ribbon Program provides additional funding up to the maximum approved by the VA based on unmet need. At the present time, Vanderbilt Owen Graduate School of Management will award up to 50% of the unmet need in Yellow Ribbon funds, to be matched by the Veterans Administration.  For additional information regarding veterans’ educational benefits at Vanderbilt University, please contact Vanderbilt’s VA school certifying officials at VASCO@vanderbilt.edu.

What Our Military Students Say

Having transitioned directly from active duty in the Marines, Vanderbilt has been a pillar of support for my family and me, enabling me to identify and pursue my next mission with confidence and resolve.

My experience in going through the admissions process was incredible. If you asked, it was provided. The admissions staff were absolutely amazing in seeing that no questions were left unanswered. Their attentiveness was off the charts in comparison to any other school I considered.

The Leadership Development Program here is something that’s really unique. I had lots of leadership experience from the military…but here I learned how to build consensus and get buy-in.
