Yellow Ribbon Program

Harvard Divinity School is pleased to announce its participation in the Post 9/11 GI Bill Yellow Ribbon Program. The Yellow Ribbon Program provides additional financial assistance to those veterans who qualify for 100 percent of Post-9/11 GI Bill educational benefits. For the 2017–18 academic year, HDS will provide scholarship assistance in the amount of up to $5,000, which will be matched by the federal government for a total assistance amount of up to $10,000. For the 2017–18 academic year, HDS will begin accepting applications for Yellow Ribbon on June 1, 2017.

If an applicant receives scholarship assistance from HDS, $5,000 of this scholarship amount will be designated as the Yellow Ribbon match.

An application for Yellow Ribbon will consist of the submission of a Notice of Enrollment Form available from the Office of Financial Aid and a copy of your VA Certificate of eligibility. The certificate of eligibility can take some time to receive so students should start the process of requesting the form once they make an enrollment decision. We cannot accept application materials submitted prior to June 1.

Students here will encounter all kinds of information in their studies. They are doing real comparative work, examining contemporary issues alongside their peers who are studying archaeology and ancient traditions. It creates a very intellectual dynamic.
