The Yellow Ribbon Program at Muhlenberg College.Wescoe School

Under the Yellow Ribbon Program tuition and fees are fully covered for veterans with 100% eligibility under the GI Bill®.

Muhlenberg College has partnered with the US Department of Veterans Affairs in offering this scholarship which covers the difference between the cost of tuition and the reimbursed amount provided by the post 9/11 GI Bill®, thereby covering 100% of the tuition for eligible veterans.

**The Yellow Ribbon scholarship increases the amount of tuition benefit available, please be aware however, that it does not extend the amount of time available beyond the 36 month period allocated by the Post 9/11 GI Bill®.
