Medaille College has been approved by the U.S. Department of Veterans
Affairs for the Yellow Ribbon Program, which provides up to $99,999 in
funding to eligible students enrolled in academic programs for the
2012-13 academic year. In addition to being the maximum amount allowable
under the federal program, Medaille will offer this to an unlimited
number of students. This is the third consecutive year that Medaille has
participated in the Yellow Ribbon Program.
"Medaille has demonstrated that it is committed to serving those who served,” said Sergio R. Rodriguez of Medaille’s Office of Veterans and Military Affairs. "We are continuing to make higher education accessible to our nation’s veterans, servicemembers and their dependents.”
The Office of Veterans and Military Affairs at Medaille College offers a
comprehensive veterans benefits screening and works to ensure that
veteran students are maximizing the benefits they have earned.
In addition to providing assistance with veterans’ education
benefits, such as the GI Bill, the New York State Veterans Tuition Award
and other veterans’ scholarship programs, the office also provides
general New York State and federal benefits assistance for veterans and
their families. Medaille offers veterans a $10,000 VETS Scholarship
above and beyond state and federal assistance. The college has also been
recognized by Military Advanced Education, Military Times and GI Jobs
magazines as a military-friendly institution.
