Yellow Ribbon


Vanderbilt Law School is committed to helping veterans transition to law school and to funding the maximum allowed under the Yellow Ribbon Program to all eligible students. We recommend that students who are eligible for Post-9/11 GI Bill® Benefits review the criteria for the Yellow Ribbon Program to determine whether or not they are eligible for this benefit. 

Once your eligibility for the Yellow Ribbon Program has been confirmed, if your tuition charges exceed the amount of the national cap, the Yellow Ribbon Program provides additional funding up to the maximum approved by the VA based on unmet need. At the present time, Vanderbilt Law School will award up to 50% of the unmet need in Yellow Ribbon funds, to be matched by the Veterans Administration.  For additional information regarding veterans’ educational benefits at Vanderbilt University, please contact Vanderbilt’s VA school certifying officials at

Details on Vanderbilt University's Yellow Ribbon Program benefits and military benefits are available through the Office of the University Registrar. A full description of the Yellow Ribbon program can be found on the Veterans Benefits Administration website.
