Yellow Ribbon Program at NNU

NNU has an unlimited number of Yellow Ribbon Scholarships available. You will receive the scholarship if you are eligible and if your tuition and fees for the school year exceed the maximum available from the Post 9/11 GI Bill.

This program makes additional funds available if your tuition and fees exceed the maximum available from the Post 9/11 GI Bill. The Yellow Ribbon Program is only available to Veterans entitled to the maximum benefit rate (100 percent). Active duty Service members and their spouses are not eligible for this program. Child transferees of active duty Service members may be eligible if the Service member is qualified at the 100 percent rate.

If you have questions regarding eligibility for the Yellow Ribbon Program, contact us at veteranservices@nnu.edu or Heather John, Student Accounts Manager, School Certifying Official, at 208-467-8519.
