Military Fellowship

The Drucker School supports the Yellow Ribbon Program

The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program) is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008.  The program allows institutions of higher learning (degree granting institutions) in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate.  The institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses and the VA will match the same amount as the institution.

You may be eligible if:

  • You served an aggregate period of active duty after September 10, 2001, of at least 36 months
  • You were honorably discharged from active duty for a service connected disability and you served 30 continuous days after September 10, 2001
  • You are a dependent eligible for Transfer of Entitlement under the Post-9/11 GI Bill based on a veteran’s service under the eligibility criteria listed above.

What the Yellow Ribbon Program provides
The Post-9/11 GI Bill pays up to the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition and fees. You may have tuition and fees that exceed that amount if you are attending a private institution, graduate school or attending in an out-of-state status. If you are enrolled at a Yellow Ribbon participating institution and the tuition and fees exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition or fees, additional funds may be available for your education program without an additional charge to your entitlement.

Institutions that voluntarily enter into a Yellow Ribbon Agreement with the VA choose the amount of tuition and fees that will be contributed.  The VA will match that amount and issue payment directly to the institution.

"I believe a big part of business school is building one's personal network, so I've really enjoyed meeting and getting to know other Drucker Fellows and the diverse backgrounds that make up this group.  I appreciate the flexibility that the Fellowship currently operates such that Fellows can be as involved as they want to with the school and any initiatives that the Fellowship program tries to develop.  Outside of the scholarship award, access to a professional mentor is an opportunity that I've taken advantage of and consider an asset I've gained through the Fellowship."
