Allen College to Participate in Yellow Ribbon Program

May 7, 2009

Allen College will participate in the federal government’s “Yellow Ribbon Program.” The Yellow Ribbon Program was created through the Post-9/11 GI Bill, which was signed into law last summer. Benefits cover the cost of attending the most expensive public institution in each state. Each participating college chooses a maximum number of students it will offer aid to, as well as the percentage of the extra cost it wants to pay — up to 50 percent, since the department matches the college's contribution. Allen College will support up to three veterans participating in the program.
