Yellow Ribbon Program for Veterans

Yellow Ribbon Application Checklist

The ESTEEM Graduate Program is grateful for the military service of our country's Airmen, Coast Guardsmen, Marines, Sailors, and Soldiers. The Yellow Ribbon Program, enacted by Congress and run by the Veterans Administration, is a matching program that authorizes significant educational benefits to eligible U.S. veterans. To view the financial commitment for the current academic year from ESTEEM and the University, please refer here and click on the "Graduate Information Sheet".  


Eligible veterans may be able to enroll in ESTEEM at no cost to themselves. Questions regarding requirements for a veteran to receive Yellow Ribbon benefits should be directed to the VA Regional Office in Indianapolis (317-916-3684) or to the VA Regional Office in veteran's home state.  General questions regarding the University of Notre Dame's participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program may be directed to the Office of Student Financial Services (574-631-6445).


Interested students may apply for acceptance into ESTEEM at any time; requirements and process are detailed here,
