Listed as a military-friendly school by GMAC, Columbia Business School is honored to have its military and veteran student population, and we seek to offer opportunities to our students to support them throughout their academic careers. Below is a brief overview of programs designed to help veterans finance their education.
Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008
Accepted students who have at least 90 days of active duty after September 10, 2001 may be eligible for this program. Interested parties may contact their local VA office for up to 36 months of education benefits. For 2017 - 18, the maximum award is $22,805.34. Students also may receive a monthly housing allowance and a stipend for books and supplies should they qualify.
The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program
Yellow Ribbon is a supplemental benefit for Post-9/11 GI Bill recipients. For the 16-17 Academic Year, we have offered eligible students $7,500, which is matched by the VA for a total of $15,000. For the 17-18 Academic Year, we will increase this amount to $10,000 in scholarship, which will then be matched by the VA for a total of $20,000. We are able to offer this scholarship to all eligible veterans who apply and meet the requirements.
Vocational Rehabilitation is a program designed to assist veterans who have a disability rating of at least 10% or a memorandum rating of 20%. The program includes full payment of tuition and fees, plus a monthly stipend.
Veterans Tuition Awards (VTA)
Veterans Tuition Awards are offered to New York State residents who have served in the US Armed Forces and are currently veterans. Awards for 2016 - 17 are $6,495 for the academic year.
Advanced Civil Schooling Scholarship Fund
The Advanced Civil Schooling Scholarship Fund provides support to participants in or who have participated in the Army’s Advanced Civil Schooling Program. Amounts vary depending on the amount of sponsorship by the Army. If selected, Columbia can assist by covering the gap between the cost of tuition and the sponsorship. The Admissions office will identify possible candidates and will reach out regarding the possibility of this award.
Paul Ferri Scholarship
The Ferri Scholarship provides financial assistance to Columbia Business School students to supplement their Yellow Ribbon funding. Ferri Scholars are chosen from among Yellow Ribbon eligible students and individuals with demonstrated financial need.
