Veteran's Administration (VA) Benefits at Georgetown Law
Veterans Benefits at Georgetown Law Center
Georgetown Law Center thanks our veterans for their service and sacrifices for our country. Throughout our history, we have made law study accessible to scores of men and women who are veterans of the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, U.S Navy, U.S Marine Corps, U.S. Coast Guard, and National Guard and Reserves. Many veterans and active duty personnel can qualify for more than one educational benefits program including:
- Post 9/11 GI Bill (chapter 22)
- Montgomery GI Bill (chapter 30 and chapter 1606)
- Reserve Education Assistance Program (REAP, chapter 1067)
- Post-Vietnam Era Veterans' Educational Assistance Program (VEAP, chapter 32)

Post-9/11 GI Bill Education Benefits
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, under the Post-9/11 GI Bill, pays up to $17,500 per academic year for a private school, effective August 1, 2011. If you are entitled to 100 percent of Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits, you will receive $17,500 per year at Georgetown Law Center. If you are eligible for these benefits, but at a rate less than 100 percent, multiply that rate by $17,500 to find your annual benefit for tuition and fees. For example, if you are entitled to 70 percent of the benefit, you would receive $12,250 per year ($17,500 x 70%). Information on eligibility, including rate tables and a benefits calculator, is provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs at http://www.gibill.va.gov.
Yellow Ribbon Program at Georgetown Law Center
Georgetown Law Center proudly participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, to make additional funds available for your education program without an additional charge to the GI Bill entitilement. Veterans Affairs (VA) will match that amount and issue payment directly to the Law School. At present, Georgetown Law will make a Yellow Ribbon Program Award of up to $15,000. Thus, with VA's matching contribution, such students can receive up to $30,000 toward tuition and fees after their Yellow Ribbon Benefits have been applied.
