Resources for Military Veterans
Fertitta Veterans Scholarship
The Fertitta Veterans Program is an innovative program specifically designed for U.S. military veterans and active duty students to support their transition to business school. Thanks to the generous gift from alumnus Lorenzo (MBA ’93) and brother Frank Fertitta, the Fertitta Veterans Program participants will receive scholarship support that reduces their tuition to a flat $30,000 per year. Students who qualify for veterans benefits, including Yellow Ribbon funding, will continue to be eligible to receive those benefits. Learn more about the Fertitta Veterans Program
Yellow Ribbon Program
NYU Stern is pleased to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program. This program is available to veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces who are 100% eligible for the new Post 9/11 GI Bill. During the 2016-2017 academic year, Stern will contribute up to $10,000 per year to MBA students. The Veterans Administration will match these funds for a potential total award of $20,000 per year. Yellow Ribbon recipients will receive the funds for the duration of their MBA tenure. Please visit the Department of Veterans Affairs website
for additional information on eligibility.
Advanced Civil Schooling Award
Any Full-time MBA admitted student who is having a portion of tuition paid for by the military through Advanced Civil Schooling (ACS), or a similar program, is eligible to apply for this award. The amount of the award will vary depending on the level of tuition support from the military. If selected for the award, it will cover any shortfall between the cost of NYU Stern tuition and the tuition funding from the military. Students must apply after admission to the program, but prior to enrolling. To apply for the award, please email email@example.com
with a brief statement of your situation and include all relevant documentation. Applications will be considered based on availability of funds.
