Yellow Ribbon Program:
Mount St. Mary's participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program. In this program, the University will match the government's contribution to the cost of education, allowing eligible veterans to attend the Mount tuition free. To be eligible, a veteran must be eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill at the 100% rate. The Yellow Ribbon Scholarship will replace any previously awarded scholarships/grants from Mount St. Mary's.
