Purdue to help veterans, military students pay tuition

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Military veterans, reserve and active duty military students attending Purdue University’s West Lafayette campus and the Technology Statewide sites can use the Yellow Ribbon Program to help pay for their education.

The Yellow Ribbon Program, an enhancement of the Post 9/11 GI Bill, lowers tuition costs that would not be fully covered by the GI Bill.

The Yellow Ribbon Program, which is an enhancement of the Post 9/11 GI Bill, will be available Aug. 1. The program lowers tuition costs that would not be fully covered by the GI Bill. Assistance will be awarded to the first 50 Purdue undergraduate, graduate or professional students who qualify. Purdue will contribute $2,000 per academic year, and the Department of Veterans Affairs will match that amount.

“Our military students have devoted their time and lives to our country, and this is a great opportunity for universities to invest in these brave men and women,” Purdue President France A. Córdova said. “Purdue will support our veterans and help them obtain their degrees with funds these students do not need to repay.”

The program affects those covered by the Post 9/11 GI Bill. Awards to qualified applicants are on a first-come basis established by the date and time an application is received. Applicants must provide a Certificate of Eligibility from the Department of Veteran Affairs. Applicants also must be in good academic standing and be enrolled at least as a part-time student. Other requirements include eligibility for Chapter 33 Post 9/11 GI Bill education benefits at the 100 percent level and admittance as a degree-seeking student with tuition and fee charges above the Veteran Affairs’ maximum in-state undergraduate rate as posted at http://www.gibill.va.gov
