Post 9/11 GI Bill

In 2008, the GI Bill was updated with the enactment of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008, giving veterans with active duty service on, or after, September 11, 2001, enhanced educational benefits that cover more educational expenses, provide a living allowance, money for books and the ability to transfer unused educational benefits to spouses or children.


Yellow Ribbon Program

The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program or YRP) is a provision of the Post-9/11 GI Bill. Since the 2009-10 academic year, the George Washington University has been a proud participant of the Yellow Ribbon Program. GW will continue its commitment to the program, for the fourth year, during the 2013-2014 academic year.

This program allows institutions of higher learning (degree granting institutions) in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to fund tuition expenses that exceed the maximum base pay amount.

Military students are then eligible to receive this funding.


Grants and Fellowships

A wide range of graduate student support is available for qualified candidates, including assistantships, fellowships, scholarships, awards, loans, work-study, and cooperative education.



Active-duty personnel, veterans, or dependents of veterans may be entitled to varying educational benefits. To be eligible, veterans must have completed at least one year of active service in the U.S. Armed Forces, unless discharged under honorable conditions for medical reasons.
