Yellow Ribbon Financial Opportunity

Every year, Rollins awards $2500.00 per academic year to two veterans or dependents who receive VA benefits under the Post-9/11 GI Bill (a.k.a. Chapter 33). Admitted students can apply by filling out the Veterans Enrollment Data Sheet and emailing it to Robie Freeman Michaux at rfreem2@emory.edu.  Students can earn a total of $5,000 during their tenure at the Rollins School of Public Health.  All forms received by June 1 will be considered as received on June 1.  Applications received after that date will be reviewed in the order that they were received.

The sooner that applicants apply, the better the chances are of receiving the award. Applicants will need to be admitted to the Rollins School of Public Health first, and meet the requirements outlined on the U.S. Veterans Administration website in order to qualify. Eligibility is determined by the Veterans Administration. For more details about this award, please visit the Office of the Registrar’s website. Tangela Derico (tderico@emory.edu) is the university's Certifying Official for VA Benefits.
