SIPA is committed to honoring those who have served our country by being one of seventeen individual schools at Columbia University participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program.

The Yellow Ribbon Program is an initiative authorized by the Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008 (the Post-9/11 GI Bill) in which educational institutions provide eligible student veterans with a tuition waiver or grant matched by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs. This program supplements the base educational benefits provided by the Post-9/11 GI Bill.  To be eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program, you must be a US veteran eligible for the maximum level (100%) of benefits under the Post-9/11 GI Bill according to your VA Certificate of Eligibility. If you are a veteran of the US Armed Forces and would like to learn more about eligibility for these benefits, please visit the GI Bill website at www.gibill.va.gov/.

An application is required and will be available on Monday, June 10, 2013 at 12pm EDT (New York) at http://new.sipa.columbia.edu/admissions/applying-to-sipa/applying-for-financial-aid under a link that will be labeled “Yellow Ribbon Program Application.”

Prior recipients must apply if interested in receiving the scholarship; it is not automatically renewed.   SIPA cannot guarantee funding for every eligible candidate, and funding will be on a first come, first served basis.
