U.S. Military & Veterans Assisted Funding

Goizueta Business School is proud to have been a Yellow Ribbon partner school since 2009. The Yellow Ribbon Program is a provision of the Post 9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008 (aka Chapter 33), and students must first be eligible for the Post 9/11 GI Bill. Please contact the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to see if you are eligible and to request a Certificate of Eligibility (COE). According to the VA, you must use your full GI Bill funding before Yellow Ribbon funding is used.  

Goizueta Business School provides up to 50 Yellow Ribbon awards per year up to $25,100 each, which is matched by the Veterans Administration. Candidates eligible for Yellow Ribbon funding will also be considered for merit-based scholarships.

Yellow Ribbon awards are provided on a first come, first serve basis and candidates are encouraged to apply to Goizueta and submit a deposit upon acceptance to secure funding. Historically, Goizueta has been able to provide Yellow Ribbon support to all eligible students.

Yellow Ribbon Program Application Process

Yellow Ribbon Program awards for the academic year are granted on a first come, first served basis. To be considered for a Goizueta Business School Yellow Ribbon Program award, you must

  • Be admitted to one of Goizueta Business School’s MBA programs; Full Time One-Year MBA, Full Time Two-Year MBA, Evening MBA, or Executive MBA
  • Verify your intent to enroll by completing the Candidate Intent form found in your admissions portal and paying the deposit to the program to which you are admitted
  • Submit a Graduate Admissions Yellow Ribbon Application
  • Complete an Emory Veteran Enrollment Form
  • Submit your Certificate of Eligibility stating you are 100% eligible for the Post 9/11 GI Bill

Multiple forms received on the same date will be prioritized by the earliest date of enrollment deposit.

Joint degree candidates must apply to each program separately for funding. Goizueta Business School Yellow Ribbon awards are applicable only for semesters spent in the Business School.

Eligibility is determined by the Veteran's Administration. In the event a Yellow Ribbon applicant is found not eligible for VA funds, the available award will be given to the next eligible person on the prioritized list.

Goizueta Business School's participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program is a contracted agreement with the Veterans Administration for the current academic year and is subject to change in subsequent years. Please email us or call 404-727-6311.
