The Yellow Ribbon Program


Alaska Pacific University is a participating Yellow Ribbon institution. The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows post-secondary institutions in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the VA (Veteran’s Administration) to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate. APU will cover a maximum of $500 scholarship match annually along with the VA contribution of $500 annually.

The Yellow Ribbon Program is available to undergraduate and graduate (full-time and part-time) students.

Please remember that you must be eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill at the 100% rate to be considered for the Yellow Ribbon Program. You must also notify the Registrar’s Office VA Representative that you qualify for Yellow Ribbon Program benefits.

*Maximum of five eligible students funded per year
