Yellow Ribbon Program

Selected by G.I. Jobs magazine as a 2017 Military Friendly School, Monmouth University is a proud participant in the Yellow Ribbon Program. Admitted students who qualify for 100 percent of the VA benefits under the new Post-9/11 GI Bill® are eligible to receive Yellow Ribbon Program funds. This allows Monmouth to award scholarships of up to 50 percent of additional tuition costs, with the remaining 50 percent to be matched by the VA. Only veterans who qualify for 100 percent of the Post 9/11 GI Bill® benefits can receive this additional funding.
