The Yellow Ribbon Provision of the New Post-9/11 GI Bill

Stanford is committed to providing benefits through the Yellow Ribbon Provision of the Post 9-11 GI Bill to students in degree seeking programs. If you qualify for Chapter 33 benefits at the 100% level, you may be eligible to receive additional tuition funding through the Yellow Ribbon Program.

Undergraduates

Under this program, Stanford provides an annual award of $3,000 to supplement the Chapter 33 base tuition benefit for undergraduate students (disbursed quarterly). The VA matches Stanford’s Yellow Ribbon contribution, so the student receives a combined total of $6,000 in additional funds.
