Veterans

The Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University is a Yellow Ribbon participant for 2014-2015. Veterans must have 100 percent Post 9/11 GI Bill eligibility and not be on active duty in order to participate. If you are 100 percent eligible and are NOT on active duty, please send a copy of your certificate of eligibility to tepper-aid@andrew.cmu.edu in addition to the copy you are required to submit to the CMU VA Certifying Official.

Under our participation level in the Yellow Ribbon Program for the 2014-2015 school year, the Tepper School covers 50 percent of the "gap" between allowable costs and Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits for eligible students, not to exceed $12,500 for up to 30 students through the Tepper School of Business Yellow Ribbon Matching Funds Scholarship.

Please note: The Tepper School's level of participation in the Yellow Ribbon matching funds may vary annually and has not yet been determined for 2015-2016. You may view the most up-to-date information on this website, which is updated as information becomes available.
