Army ROTC Scholarships Full-tuition scholarships are awarded based on a student’s merit, with allowances for books, fees and stipends that are worth up to $5,000 annually—all of which allow students to focus on academics and their training rather than finances.

The Post-9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33) Benefits This benefit is designed for individuals who served on active duty on or after September 11, 2001 and who are pursuing education on or after August 1, 2009. You may be eligible for the GI Bill benefits even though you are not eligible for the Yellow Ribbon benefits. You should definitely check on both.

The Plaid Ribbon Program Monmouth College has a proud military tradition, with four Medal of Honor recipients among its alumni. Helping 2011 graduate J.D. Holeman (center) celebrate his commissioning as a second lieutenant is 1968 graduate Bill Trubeck (left) and Brig. Gen. Roy S. Webb of the Iowa National Guard.

“The U.S. Department of Labor reports that 10 of the top job opportunities this year did not even exist in 2005. Liberal Arts graduates have learned how to embrace uncertainty, which gives them a distinct advantage in an uncertain job market. They learn to inspire initiative, promote creative thinking, facilitate innovation, and encourage complex problem solving from all members of the team. During my 28 years of military service, I learned to appreciate the value of my broad-based Liberal Arts education. The complexities of today’s ever-shrinking world demand the flexibility that a college like Monmouth provides tomorrow’s leaders.” — Colonel (ret) Stephen M. Bloomer Monmouth college class of 1983

Unique to Monmouth College, the Plaid Ribbon Program is designed to help even more Post 9/11 individuals who served on active duty on or after September 11, 2001. The Plaid Ribbon Program provides assistance to help cover educational expenses not already covered through the Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits, without the restrictions and the minimum lengths of service required by the Yellow Ribbon Program. Plaid Ribbon funding awarded by Monmouth College is not restricted to tuition.

The Yellow Ribbon Program This GI Educational Enhancement Program is a provision of the Post 9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. Under this program, individuals who meet minimum service requirements may receive funding in addition to the general Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits. Monmouth College has a voluntary agreement with the Veteran’s Administration to provide matching assistance to help cover tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate. You should contact the VA to determine your level of eligibility and to obtain your certificate of eligibility, which will outline the Chapter you are eligible to collect under and your approved level of funding. THE YELLOW RIBBON PROGRAM ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS: Only veterans

entitled to the maximum benefit rate (based on service requirements) or their designated transferees may receive this funding. Active duty service members and their spouses are not eligible for this program (child transferees of active duty service members may be eligible if the service member is qualified at the 100% rate). Therefore, you may be eligible if: • You served an aggregate period of active duty after September 10, 2001, of at least 36 months; • You were honorably discharged from active duty for a service connected disability and you served 30 continuous days after September 10, 2001; • You are a dependent eligible for Transfer of Entitlement under the Post-9 /11 GI Bill based on a veteran’s service under the eligibility criteria listed above. —From the yellow ribbon program eligibility Information, Educational Benefits Division of the Veteran’s Administration
