This program allows institutions of higher learning to voluntarily enter into an agreement with VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed the in-state tuition and fee rates. The institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses and VA will match the same amount as the institution. Texas A&M University participates in the Yellow Ribbon program. It is awarded on a first-come first-served basis. Active duty service members, spouses of active duty service members, and Fry Scholarship recipients are not eligible for this program.
