The Yellow Ribbon Program (YRP), which was established by the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008, provides supplemental education funding to veterans by matching contributions made by participating colleges and universities.
As a Yellow Ribbon Program participant for all undergraduate and graduate degree programs, Lehigh will provide the Yellow Ribbon Program benefit for up to ten undergraduate students per year.
Students are selected for admission based on the merits of their accomplishments and promise. The YRP benefit will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis in order of the receipt of the application for admission among those veterans who are selected for admission.
Lehigh will pay half of the difference between the VA's base benefit and Lehigh's tuition, and the VA will match our contribution. Our grant is for tuition only. The student may, of course, apply for financial aid, but we expect that, in most cases, the VA's other benefits may meet the student's need.
Interested candidates should apply for admission to Lehigh University and also apply for benefits under the Post-9/11 GI Bill with the Department of Veterans Affairs.
For more information about the Post-9/11 GI Bill and VA education benefits, please call 1-888-GI BILL 1 (888-442-4551) or visit the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website. The Department of Veterans Affairs toll-free number and website provide:
