Financial Aid for Veterans

Under our participation level in the Yellow Ribbon Program for the 2017-2018 school year, the Tepper School assists up to 30 eligible veteran students through our Yellow Ribbon Matching Funds Scholarship.

The Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University is a Yellow Ribbon participant for 2017-2018.

Veterans must have 100 percent Post 9/11 GI Bill eligibility and not be on active duty in order to participate. 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 2017-2018 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 $15,000 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 2018-2019. You may view the most up-to-date information on this website, which is updated as information becomes available.
