KNOXVILLE—The College of Business Administration at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, is proud to offer financial support to US military veterans admitted to any of the college’s master’s or Ph.D. graduate programs.
The scholarships are part of the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program), which allows degree-granting institutions in the US to fund tuition expenses that exceed the in-state tuition and fee rate. Institutions can waive up to 50 percent of those expenses, and the Department of Veterans Affairs will match the same amount as the institution.
Under the program, which was instituted after 9/11, UT’s College of Business Administration will admit up to ten veterans who are deemed eligible by the US government’s Department of Veterans Affairs for the Post-9/11 GI Bill; each will receive $3,000 a year in scholarship support for his or her degree if needed, and the amount is not to exceed the full cost of tuition and fees. The Department of Veterans Affairs will match the school’s $3,000 funding per admitted student.
“These men and women enrich the classroom experience with their unique perspectives, wealth of knowledge, and depth of experience,” said Dean Jan Williams. “We are honored to be able to make our programs available to those who have served our country.”
Benefits will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
