This institutional and federal match program is open to eligible U.S. Veterans and does not require that you file a FAFSA for consideration. Recipients must be in a degree seeking, undergraduate program. You must contact the Veteran's Certifying Official located in Curry's Registrar's Office to have your eligibility for this program certified. The Yellow Ribbon Program is comprised of a Curry College Yellow Ribbon Grant and a federal Yellow Ribbon Match Award. You will need to complete an Enrollment Verification Form available in the Student Financial Services Office indicating your intended enrollment plans for the aca­demic year for which you are seeking funds. Funding levels are very limited and available on a first-come basis. Funds will be credited to the student's tuition account once the fed­eral match component is received for the semester. Students must maintain eligibility and renewal criteria as outlined by the Veterans Administration.
