Post-9/11 GI Bill
- Yellow Ribbon Program: The US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) matches each dollar that NYU agrees to contribute to a student’s education, up to the cost of tuition and fees. For example, if NYU contributes $10,000, the VA will match this number for a total award of $20,000. The amount awarded is determined by the amount of other benefits provided to an eligible student. Students may not be eligible for the maximum amount each year. Information on the Yellow Ribbon Program at NYU can be found here.
- Transfer of Entitlement Option: Military members may transfer all or some of their unused benefits and aid to their spouse or dependent children. Considerations regarding this benefit include the nature of transfer, reallocation of benefits, and marriage and divorce.
- Survivors and Dependents Assistance: Education and training opportunities are offered to survivors and dependents of veterans through two program options: the Marine Gunnery Sergeant John David Fry Scholarship (Fry Scholarship) and the Survivors’ and Dependents’ Educational Assistance (DEA) program.
