Yellow Ribbon Funding

The University of Denver is partnered with the Yellow Ribbon Funding Program, which seeks to keep out-of-state colleges and private universities within reach for student veterans whose GI Bill® benefits are already maxed out. Beginning in 2017, the Yellow Ribbon Funding Program increased its fund availability. DU now offers an additional $5,000, which the US Department of Veterans Affairs has agreed to match.
