United States veterans may be eligible to receive full tuition benefits and fee waivers upon gaining admission to our Master of Science in Threat and Response Management program. We are proud to count a number of veterans amongst our students and alumni, including 23 percent of current students.
As part of our participation in the Post-9/11 Yellow Ribbon Program, veterans' education will be fully funded once their application to the program is accepted and eligibility is verified by the University of Chicago Veterans' Services.
The Yellow Ribbon Program is a provision of the law that created the Post-9/11 GI Bill. The program allows approved institutions of higher learning and the Department of Veterans Affairs to partially, or fully, fund tuition and fee expenses that exceed the established thresholds under the Post-9/11 GI Bill. The Yellow Ribbon Education Enhancement Program is part of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008 (commonly known as Chapter 33).
The University of Chicago proudly participates with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs in the Post-9/11 Yellow Ribbon Program to help enhance financial support to veterans of the armed forces. This benefit is available to assist servicemen and women earn a Master of Science in Threat and Response Management (MScTRM).

Full-time attendance is not necessary to be in the Yellow Ribbon Program. If you are interested in this program, you must apply and gain admission to the Master of Science in Threat and Response Management program to learn if you are eligible for Yellow Ribbon Benefits.
