Amridge University is proud to demonstrate its commitment
to our nation's veterans by participating in the Yellow Ribbon
Program. All veterans eligible for the program (as determined by the
VA) will receive a Yellow Ribbon Scholarship. That scholarship,
together with matching funds from the VA, will cover all tuition and
fee expenses at Amridge University that are not covered by your
Chapter 33 benefits. That means that the combination of financial
support from Amridge University's Yellow Ribbon Scholarship and from
the VA will cover the full cost of tuition and fees. For more
information about applying for VA benefits,
Amridge University's participation in the Yellow Ribbon program is
determined annually. Should Amridge University cease participation in
the Yellow Ribbon program, eligible Veterans will continue to receive
other benefits under the Post 9/11 GI Bill.
