We welcome men and women who have served in the U.S. Military to Emory. College is a big investment of time, of money, of effort and it's important that you are happy with your choice. We're happy you're considering Emory as your college choice.

Emory works with the Veteran's Administration to offer veterans financial aid through the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program.

Overview

The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program is a provision of the Post 9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. Emory College of Arts and Sciences offers  a Yellow Ribbon Award of $7000.00 per academic year to four students in the College of Arts and Sciences for as long as they are enrolled in Emory College of Arts and Sciences. Please see the Veterans Administration website at https://www.gibill.va.gov/GI_Bill_Info/CH33/Yellow_ribbon.htm for additional information on eligibility. Your Certificate of Eligibility (COE) from the Veteran’s Administration and the Veteran’s Data Enrollment Sheet at http://registrar.emory.edu/_includes/documents/sections/records-transcripts/VeteransEnrollmentDataInformation.pdf are the student’s application for this award.
