Yellow Ribbon Program Hamline University is proud to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Education Enhancement Program, a program created to cover costs of in-state education for military veterans. Hamline offers an increased tuition benefit to undergraduate and graduate military veterans, which will then be matched by the Veterans Administration. Hamline provides 20 Yellow Ribbon Program awards for undergraduate students, 20 awards for graduate students in the School of Business, and 20 awards for graduate students in the School of Education. Hamline contributes up to $10,000 per year for undergraduate student veterans. Matching Yellow Ribbon funds from the VA, along with other support offered through the new GI bill, generally will cover full-tuition costs for these students. Hamline contributes up to $2,875 per year for graduate students in the School of Business and $1,376 for graduate students in the School of Education. Awards to qualified Hamline applicants are be made on a first-come basis and can be renewed each year until they graduate. In order to qualify, students must submit their certificate of eligibility from the VA to the Hamline University Office of Financial Aid. The Yellow Ribbon Program, a provision of the Post 9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008, benefits those individuals who qualify, based on their active duty service since September 11, 2001. The program provides tuition assistance, housing allowance, and a stipend for books and supplies. Benefits may also be transferred to family members under certain circumstances.
