Veterans Benefits & Financial Aid

Various Johnson funds ensure that many veterans who come to Cornell to obtain an MBA at Johnson receive substantial support.

GI Bill Assistance (Post 9/11 and Yellow Ribbon)

Cornell University and Johnson have entered agreement with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program, a supplement to the Post-9/11 educational benefit. Veterans eligible for VA benefits should contact their Veterans Administration regional office for eligibility. Once you have obtained your certificate of eligibility letter from the VA, please forward to Johnson’s Financial Aid Office. Cornell's Office of the University Registrar will process enrollment each term to the VA. For further information please visit the VA website at  (Please note, if you are currently on active duty status and you are 100% Post 9/11 eligible, you will need to be released from active duty prior to the start of classes to use the Yellow Ribbon portion of your benefit for the fall term.)  

New York State offers a variety of scholarships to veterans, which can be found at:

Peter and Stephanie Nolan Veterans Scholarship

Cornell Trustee Emeritus Peter Nolan ’80, MBA ’82, and his wife, Stephanie Nolan ’84, have given nearly $2 million to help the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management support U.S. military veterans seeking an MBA. The Nolan Scholarship allows the Admissions & Financial Aid office to identify and reward outstanding Veterans who, we believe, will be an asset to Johnson.

Roy H. Park Leadership Fellows Program

Apply for the Park Fellowship, a full-tuition scholarship and leadership development program.

The Johnson Veterans Scholarship

The Johnson Veterans Scholarship is an endowment that is funded by veteran alumni contributions. Alumni veterans of the Johnson give back in many ways including supporting the school financially and enabling it to attract and support veterans that follow.
