Yellow Ribbon Program

To further support veterans, the University of San Diego has partnered with the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) and contributes additional funds to support graduate education. Graduate students can receive up to $7,448 annually in the form of a scholarship from the University of San Diego, which is then matched by the VA, for a maximum of $14,896 annually, which can be used for tuition. In addition, the VA also offers a $1,000 per year book allowance that is prorated based on credit hours taken.
