Funding for US Military and Veterans

CMIST welcomes applications from veterans and those currently serving in the US Military. CMIST offers a limited number of scholarships every year for graduates from select US military academies. In addition, the University Registrar's Office provides services to veterans and their dependents who are eligible for Veterans Education Benefits under the Montgomery GI Bill, Post-9/11 GI Bill.

CMU also participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program for those who are 100 percent eligible for benefits under the Post-9/11 GI Bill. In order to use Veterans Education Benefits, you must be an admitted Carnegie Mellon student (graduate or undergraduate). Veterans Affairs determines the amount of benefits a student can receive; therefore, we cannot estimate benefit amounts. Please contact the VA at 1-888-442-4551 to find out the amount you are eligible to receive.
