Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program Application
Please complete the Yellow Ribbon Program application.
In submitting the Yellow Ribbon application, you are indicating your intent to utilize your Post-9/11 GI Bill® and Yellow Ribbon eligibility. Cornell offers aid based on financial need. If you apply and qualify for need-based aid, you may not need to utilize Yellow Ribbon/VA/GI Bill® Benefits. Contact our office if you have questions about how to proceed.
VA benefits are taken into consideration for institutional aid eligibility but they do not impact a student’s eligibility for Federal Student Aid. Students who choose to utilize their Post-9/11 GI Bill® and/or Yellow Ribbon benefits should still complete the FAFSA application as receiving VA benefits does not impact a student’s eligibility for Federal Student Aid such as Federal Direct Loans and Pell Grants.
