Scholarships from Other Sources
Yellow Ribbon Program
Susquehanna is a member of the Yellow Ribbon GI Educational Enhancement Program, a provision of the Post 9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. Susquehanna's agreement with the United States Department of Veterans Affairs provides free tuition to members of this program.
Students are eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program if they served an aggregate period of active duty of at least 36 months after Sept. 10, 2001; were honorably discharged from active duty for a service-connected disability and served 30 continuous days after Sept. 10, 2001; or are a dependent eligible for Transfer of Entitlement under the Post-9/11 GI Bill based on veteran's service under the eligibility criteria listed above.
The Post 9/11 and Yellow Ribbon funding could result in an adjustment to the initial financial aid award package, depending on the amount of funding received. If a student exhausts Post 9/11 and Yellow Ribbon funding, Susquehanna will reinstate the previous scholarship. Need-based grant funding is reviewed annually after receipt of the FAFSA and can vary depending on income changes and/or household changes.
Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC)
Susquehanna students who are cadets of the Bison Battalion Army ROTC may receive scholarships through the military science program. Students receiving a full-tuition scholarship through the program are provided with free room (double only) and board by the university.

Report an Outside Scholarship
Many students receive awards from outside the university, such as those from local civic or educational organizations, employee educational benefit programs, the Pennsylvania Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, or Reserve Officers' Training Corps. These awards must be reported to the Office of Financial Aid. They will be incorporated into financial aid packages and will be used first to offset equal amounts of loans and/or work.
