Veteran Benefits

NYU 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 VA Benefits. During the academic year, Stern will contribute awards of up to $30,000 per year to eligible MBA students. The Veterans Administration will match these funds for a potential total award of $30,000 per year. With the combined Stern and VA awards, students may receive up to $60,000 each year. Yellow Ribbon recipients will receive the funds for the duration of their MBA tenure. Visit NYU's Veterans Benefits page and the Department of Veterans Affairs website for additional information on benefits and eligibility.

Members of the U.S. military and U.S. military veterans who have served on active duty are eligible for an application fee waiver. Email your request for a fee waiver to and include documentation of service.  Waivers must be requested before online submission of the formal application.
