Blue Ribbon Grant


American National University is proud to award up to $18,000 in tuition assistance to qualified military veterans, active duty, Guard/Reserve and military spouses and dependents. This grant can be used in addition to existing education benefits. You may also call your American National University representative for more details.


Yellow Ribbon Grant


The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (The Yellow Ribbon Program) is a provision of the Post9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows institutions of higher learning (degree granting institutions) in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in–state undergraduate tuition rate. The institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses and VA will match the same amount as the institution. Institutions that voluntarily enter into a Yellow Ribbon Agreement with VA choose the amount of tuition and fees that will be contributed. VA will match that amount and issue payment directly to the institutions. Most times this is done during the summer term when VA funding has reached its maximum during the year.


Education Benefits for Spouses—My Career Advancement Account (MyCAA)


Military spouses may receive education benefits through the MyCAA program when pursuing approved degree programs, licenses or credentials.

Application: Military services students with military education assistance funding are evaluated for eligibility during financial aid appointments.

Award: The grant will be awarded up to 50% of the Chapter 33 tuition payment.
