Yellow Ribbon Program
Wentworth is proud to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program. This program is for veterans entitled at the 100% benefit level under the Post-9/11 GI Bill. Eligible veterans whose tuition charges exceed the annual maximum allowed by the VA can receive up to $5,000 in Yellow Ribbon funds from Wentworth, and the VA, to be deducted from the tuition charge.
