UW-Whitewater is a participant in the Yellow Ribbon Enhancement Program (a.k.a. Yellow Ribbon). As a participant of the Yellow Ribbon program, UW-Whitewater has agreed to fund 50% of the remaining unmet tuition & fee charges, the other 50% being funded by the Veterans Administration. Awards are made to a total of 10 qualified non-resident undergraduates, including continuing students who are already receiving Yellow Ribbon benefits from previous semesters.  Applicants are considered on a first-come, first-served basis.

The amount each student will receive from UW-W will vary according to the cost of their degree program and any tuition specific scholarships or grant they may have been awarded.

Please note that the Yellow Ribbon Program award cannot be combined with other UW-Whitewater institutional awards to result in a surplus for the student.

The Yellow Ribbon Program is available to qualified non-resident undergraduate students in all degree programs offered at UW-Whitewater.

Applications are available through the Veterans' Services Office located in the Registrar's Office, 2032 Roseman Hall.

How to Apply

If you meet the aforementioned criteria, submit the following to apply for the Yellow Ribbon program:

  • A completed Yellow Ribbon application
  • A copy of the Certificate of Eligibility*

*Students must forward their Certification of Eligibility (CoE) as soon as it becomes available. Funds will not be disbursed until the CoE is received by UW-W's Veteran's Services Office.

If selected for the Yellow Ribbon Program at UW-W, students will be funded each year AS LONG AS UW-W CONTINUES TO RENEW ITS AGREEMENT WITH THE VA. UW-W has the right to reduce awards or discontinue the program at the end of each academic year.
