U.S. Armed Forces Award

Military veterans with MBAs bring valuable skills to the classroom and to their post-MBA employer: leadership, reliability, productivity, and an understanding of diverse teams. We are dedicated to supporting veterans and active duty members of the U.S. military through financial awards that augment Post-9/11 GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon Program benefits.

The University of Iowa participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, meaning veterans pursuing degrees and paying out-of-state tuition can qualify for additional support if they are eligible for the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill.


Graduate Student


Veterans or active-duty U.S. military who are also eligible for Post-9/11 G.I. Bill benefits. To be considered for this award, please indicate your military status on the application.

How to Apply

The Tippie MBA awards approximately $17,000 in the form of a Graduate Assistantship (paid to you directly through a monthly salary) and a scholarship. For those receiving full tuition payment through the G.I. Bill, scholarships in varying amounts are available that will pay out in addition to G.I. Bill benefits. In addition, and with verification of service, all veterans areĀ eligible for in-state tuition, which provides even greater financial value.
