Yellow Ribbon Scholarship
The Yellow Ribbon Program at Virginia Tech provides a total of 20 scholarships on a first-come, first-serve basis to out-of-state undergraduates who are utilizing Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits. The amount of the Virginia Tech Yellow Ribbon Scholarship is up to $2,500 for the academic year, or $1,250 each fall and spring semesters, of the unmet tuition and fees for each term. As the Department of Veterans Affairs will then match the contribution made by the institution, this scholarship could yield as much as $5,000 in total tuition and fees benefits per academic year for approved students. To be eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Scholarship Program students must be pursuing an undergraduate degree in a VA-approved academic program at Virginia Tech, and must be paying out-of-state tuition. The student must be 100% eligible for, and using the Post 9/11 GI Bill, cannot be on active duty, and must have Chapter 33 GI Bill entitlement remaining.
Current Yellow Ribbon recipients can maintain the scholarship. To retain the scholarship, students must reapply every academic year (before Fall), remain continuously enrolled at Virginia Tech (excluding the summer/winter terms), maintain good academic standing, and continue to meet listed eligibility requirements.
