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 2018-2019 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 2018-2019 academic year, Notre Dame Law School will cover $17,343 of tuition and mandatory fees for Yellow Ribbon Program eligible veterans (for up to 20 students). 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.
Post 9/11 GI Bill (Indiana, 100 percent) = $23,671
NDLS Yellow Ribbon contribution = $17,343
VA Yellow Ribbon contribution = $17,343
Total award for eligible veteran = $58,358^
^Awards will be adjusted to avoid exceeding the total cost of mandatory tuition and fees.
