Harvard continues Yellow Ribbon Program

1 min read

Harvard President Drew Faust has renewed the University‘s partnership with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to assist eligible veterans in meeting the costs of their education through the Yellow Ribbon Program. Last year, in the program’s inaugural year, 69 Harvard student-veterans received more than $350,000 in institutional assistance that was matched by the VA for tuition costs. Building on this effort, all of Harvard’s Schools are participating again this year. About 180 veterans were enrolled at Harvard this academic year.
