Since 2009, GW has been a proud participant in the Yellow Ribbon program, a provision of the Post-9/11 GI Bill® that provides assistance with educational expenses. This program allows institutions of higher learning in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the Department of Veterans Affairs to fund tuition expenses that exceed the maximum base pay amount.

GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government Web site at
