The increase will provide students with $15,000 per year from Georgetown McDonough (up from $10,000 in previous years), resulting in a total of $30,000 annually thanks to a matching gift from the Department of Veterans.Discussing the Georgetown scholarships and how it will help veterans at the university, Dean Paul Almeida talked about the burden it eases for those in their community. “By virtue of being in Washington DC, we share a home with many members of the military community seeking to transfer their valuable training and experiences into the business world,” he said. “We are proud to increase our Yellow Ribbon funding for these servicemen and women. Easing their financial access to our programs is one way we can thank them for their service.”In addition to the increase in funding, which can be used to pay for tuition and fees, Georgetown McDonough also removed the cap on enrollment. Now, an unlimited number of eligible students can benefit from the funding when they attend one of Georgetown McDonough’s eligible graduate programs. Those programs include the following: Full-time and Evening MBAExecutive MBAGlobal Executive MBAExecutive Masters in LeadershipA. in International Business and PolicyS. in FinanceTo qualify for the Yellow Ribbon program, veterans must be 100 percent eligible for post-9/11 benefits.
