Resources for Military Veterans

The Military Veterans Scholarship

The Military Veterans Scholarship is awarded to exceptional candidates and covers full tuition and fees, as well as a small stipend, for two years of study in the Full-time MBA program. All U.S. military members and veterans of the U.S. armed forces are considered.

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 2015-2016 academic year, Stern will contribute up to 25 scholarships of $10,000 per year to MBA students. The Veterans Administration will match these funds for a 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 with a brief statement of your situation and include all relevant documentation. Applications will be considered based on availability of funds.
