The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. It is a supplement to the “Post GI Bill Benefit in Pennsylvania” also known as Chapter #33 and expands veterans’ higher-education benefits, together paying the majority, if not all, of tuition and fees for participating students. Students applying to Bryn Mawr may also be eligible for additional aid beyond the VA benefit.
All VA benefits, including housing allowances and book stipends sent directly to the student will be considered resources before Bryn Mawr Grant eligibility is calculated. Eligible students admitted to degree programs in Bryn Mawr’s undergraduate college will be able to take advantage of this benefit pending College approval for the 2016-2017 school year.
