Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College is now affiliated with the U.S. Department of Veterans’ Affairs Yellow Ribbon Program, a voluntary fund-matching partnership with degree-granting universities and colleges. The Yellow Ribbon Program provides assistance toward the education of veterans (or their dependents under a Transfer of Entitlement) to help students with out-of-pocket tuition and fees not covered by the Post-9/11 GI Bill® (Ch.33).
Participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program is part of Goldfarb School of Nursing’s effort to recruit and strengthen its commitment to help the school’s veteran student population to pursue nursing careers. This particular program will allow eligible student veterans to pursue their nursing education with fewer financial constraints. The Best Colleges ranked nursing as the third best degree for veterans.
“We are honored to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program,” says Adam Colvin, financial aid compliance specialist at Goldfarb. “The job market for nurses continues to grow, and by minimizing costs for veterans and their family members, we are able to make their dream a reality and help fund some of their education. This is truly a win-win situation for everyone.”
Goldfarb School of Nursing is participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program up to the $5,000 level. Eligible veterans will be able to receive institutional-based aid up to $5,000 annually with the Department of Veteran Affairs matching those funds.
