Yellow Ribbon Program

Notre Dame Law School is grateful for the military service of those who have bravely served our country. As a reflection of our gratitude, the Law School is pleased to assist our veterans and their families by our continued support and participation with the Post-9/11 GI Bill® Yellow Ribbon Program for the 2020-2021 academic year.

The Yellow Ribbon Program, enacted by Congress and run by the Veterans Administration, is a matching program that authorizes significant educational benefits to eligible U.S. military veterans.

To put it simply, if you're 100 percent post-9/11 GI Bill® eligible, the combination of your Chapter 33 benefits, our Yellow Ribbon funding, and the VA's matching Yellow Ribbon funding will add up to tuition and fees. 

For the 2020-2021 academic year, Notre Dame Law School will cover $18,963 of tuition and mandatory fees for Yellow Ribbon Program eligible veterans. In addition, those veterans will receive matching funds through the VA’s Yellow Ribbon Program up to a combination of benefits and scholarships not to exceed the total amount of tuition and fees.
