UT's College of Business Administration Offers Scholarships to Veterans
The College of Business Administration at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, is proud to offer financial support to US military veterans admitted to any of the college's master's or Ph.D. graduate programs.
The scholarships are part of the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program), which allows degree-granting institutions in the US to fund tuition expenses that exceed the in-state tuition and fee rate. Institutions can waive up to 50 percent of those expenses, and the Department of Veterans Affairs will match the same amount as the institution.
Under the program, which was instituted after 9/11, UT's College of Business Administration will admit up to 4 veterans who are deemed eligible by the US government's Department of Veterans Affairs for the Post-9/11 GI Bill. UTK will make contributions to a maximum of 4 admitted individual students at any given time, for a maximum amount per student of $10,000 per academic year. These awards will be granted to eligible students on a first-come-first-served basis.
"These men and women enrich the classroom experience with their unique perspectives, wealth of knowledge and depth of experience," said Dean Jan Williams. "We are honored to be able to make our programs available to those who have served our country."
Benefits will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
