Veterans Benefits

We're proud to be a Military Friendly School.

Veterans at Middlebury

Transform your military service into a civilian career through one of our internationally-focused master's programs, which includes several joint BA/MA programs.

We offer 100% tuition coverage for qualifying veterans through the Post-9/11 GI Bill and the Yellow Ribbon Program. 

Yellow Ribbon Program

Available for up to 75 Veterans per Year

To assist veterans with their educational goals, we participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program, which guarantees full tuition benefits for up to 75 eligible veterans each academic year to attend one of our world-class degree programs. We offer preferential scholarship consideration for merit and need-based scholarships to veterans who are not eligible for benefits.


If you are not active duty and are 100% eligible for Ch. 33 Post-9/11, you are eligible for Yellow Ribbon benefits.

If you are eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program, please contact one of our financial aid counselors after you have been admitted, as we will make awards based on a first-come, first-served basis.

How to Apply

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How many Yellow Ribbon veterans can participate?

We have agreed to accept up to 75 veterans per academic year.  Awards will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. We accept applications on a rolling basis to our bachelor's and master's programs for fall or spring semester. Learn how to apply.

Will I be eligible for other MIIS scholarships?

All admitted students are considered for merit and need-based scholarships.  Since our maximum scholarship offer may be less than the benefits available through the Yellow Ribbon Program, you will be considered for the Yellow Ribbon program first. Merit scholarships will be forfeited if you receive veterans' benefits.

Admitted veterans who do not receive Yellow Ribbon Program funds will receive consideration for our merit and need-based scholarships.

Where can I find more information?

You can find comprehensive information about the educational benefits available through the Montgomery GI Bill or Post-9/11 GI Bill, including eligibility requirements, on the GI Bill website.
