Trinity College and the Pratt School of Engineering are proud participants in the Yellow Ribbon Program, which is an enhancement of the Post 9-11 Veteran's Educational Assistance Act of 2008. Yellow Ribbon awards are available to qualifying veterans or children of veterans (when the benefits have been transferred). Trinity and Pratt will each contribute up to $5,000 in Yellow Ribbon scholarship support and the VA will provide up to $5,000 in additional funding.
Eligibility Criteria/ Scholarship Guidelines
Only veterans deemed 100% eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill, as determined by service requirements, or their designated transferees may receive this funding. Child transferees of active duty service members may be qualified if the service member is qualified at the 100% rate.
Although the Department of Veterans Affairs is ultimately responsible for determining eligibility for the Yellow Ribbon Program, here are the eligibility criteria pertinent to the veteran:
Veterans must be 100% eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill.
Veterans must not be on active duty, nor may you be a spouse using transferred entitlement.
Veterans must have served an aggregate period of 36 months in active duty after Sept. 10 or were honorably discharged from active duty for a service-connected disability and served 30 continuous days after Sept. 10.
You are a dependent eligible for Transfer of Entitlement under the Post-9/11 GI Bill based on the service eligibility criteria listed above.
