US Veterans and dependants of Veterans:

Richmond is registered with the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA); therefore, if you are a veteran or veteran dependant student, you are qualified to apply for VA Benefits (The Post 9/11 GI Bill or DEA) to use toward your Richmond fees. Richmond is dedicated to providing support to students who are veterans and dependants of veterans. As such, Richmond offers qualifying students the Yellow Ribbon Campaign Scholarship.

Scholarship:
Richmond Yellow Ribbon Scholarship – $15,000 per academic year.

To qualify for the scholarship, please obtain your “Certificate of Eligibility” (COE) from your education officer. Once you have your COE, please submit it to our Office of Financial Assistance at [email protected]. The Office of Financial Assistance can then confirm scholarship eligibility.

Upon receipt of the certificate, the Office of Financial Assistance can certify enrolment with the VA at the start of the semester for new students.

Please note: Richmond does not participate in the VA Yellow Ribbon Campaign as these funds cannot be used by students attending university outside of the United States. The Yellow Ribbon Campaign Scholarship cannot be combined with any other Richmond-issued scholarship.

"SI-UK has been a crucial part of my UK journey. They assisted me in obtaining my bachelor's degree in August 2019 and now, they've aided me in securing admission to a top design university in London for my master's. The counselors at SI-UK offer personalised support to each applicant, helping us in each and every step including the final stage of obtaining our CAS letter once we receive the offer."

"Last year, I reached out to SI-UK, Jaipur for my Master’s journey, and it has been an incredibly fulfilling and successful experience. From guiding me through the application process to assisting with letters of recommendation and statement of purpose, and even following up with universities, SI-UK provided comprehensive support at every step of the journey. They went the extra mile, assisting with admissions, fee processing, accommodation arrangements, visa guidance, and coordination on medical checkups. I firmly believe that my admission to the University of Birmingham wouldn't have been possible without SI-UK. I highly recommend SI-UK to anyone seeking admission to a UK or Ireland university."

With the support of my counsellor who made exceptional efforts, I smoothly navigated the application process which culminated in the timely acquisition of my UK student visa hassle-free. I wholeheartedly endorse SI-UK to fellow students aiming to pursue their dreams of studying in the UK. Thank you!
