The Yellow Ribbon Program is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows degree-granting institutions in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to fund tuition expenses. More detailed information may be found at www.gibill.va.gov/.
UC Irvine School of Law is participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program for the 2012-2013 school year and will provide funding for any gap in tuition and fees not already covered by the VA or other sources. Total aid including Yellow Ribbon Program awards may not exceed the total cost of tuition and fees.
Under the program, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs will allow UCI Law to assist non-resident students with $5,000 of their non-resident tuition. Applicants will be considered and awarded on a first-come, first-served basis and only 10 awards of up to $5,000 each will be made for each academic year, including participants carried over from the previous year. If chosen, the award is renewable for two more years as long as the eligibility requirements are met each year.
