Yellow Ribbon Program Participant But With Limitations

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. While Brown University participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, it places some limitations on the awards it grants, so your participation in this program is not guaranteed.

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