Post-9/11 GI Bill Education Benefits

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, under the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill, pays $26,381.37 per academic year for a private school, effective August 1, 2022.  If you are entitled to 100 percent of your benefits, you will receive the amount of $26,381.37.  If you are eligible for these benefits at a rate less than 100 percent, multiply that rate by $26381.37 to find your annual benefit for tuition and fees.  For example, if you are entitled to 80% of the benefit, you would receive $21,105.09 ($26,381.37 x 80%).  Information on eligibility, including rate tables and a benefits calculator, is provided on the Department of Veterans Affairs’ website.

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 entitlement.  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 an unlimited amount.  Thus, with VA’s matching contribution, such students can receive a matching amount toward tuition and fees after their Yellow Ribbon Benefits have been applied.

Starting August 1, 2022, you may become eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program if you’re currently an active-duty service member who qualifies at the 100% level (you already served on active duty for at least 36 months) or if you’re a spouse using the transferred benefits of an active-duty service member who meets these qualifications.
