Remember, some forms of aid such as Pell Grants are awarded in addition to your Post-9/11 GI Bill® benefits so be sure to fill out your FASA forms.

Yellow Ribbon Program

It appears as though Bowie State University participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, but we could not determine if there are restrictions of this participation. If you have tuition and fees charges that are not covered by your Post-9/11 benefits, you may be able to get additional assistance in the form of a Yellow Ribbon Award so check with the college.

Remember, only veterans who qualify for full Post-9/11 benefits are eligible to participate in a Yellow Ribbon program.

Bowie State University awarded a total of $1,000 in Yellow Ribbon benefits last year. This was awarded to just one veteran for a total award of $2,000, after government matching.
