Yellow Ribbon Program

Yellow Ribbon program logo

The Sturm College of Law is proud to support American Military Veterans through the Yellow Ribbon Program, which provides matching funds for tuition expenses. Starting in the Fall 2023 semester, the Sturm College of Law will cover tuition costs for eligible veterans over the GI Bill cap, making us a fully-funded Yellow Ribbon institution. Universities that participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program make additional funds available for veterans attending an out-of-state or private university. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs matches all contributions made by an institution. If you are 100% GI Bill eligible, then the Yellow Ribbon Program and the Sturm College of Law will cover your full tuition and fees. More information on VA benefits can be found at

Since 2016, DU’s community of student veterans, dependents, active-duty service members, and reservists has steadily grown to close to 500 individuals. And we are proud that DU routinely ranks as a top-100 school for veterans and active-duty service members. This is in large part thanks to our Veterans and Military Resource department, which is dedicated to connecting the veteran community at DU, providing student and career mentorship, as well as support resources and much more.
