Financial Aid for Military Service Members and Veterans

To make pursuing a college education more affordable for active-duty service members and military veterans — and to acknowledge their service — Averett University proudly participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program and certifies the GI Bill.

The University offers other financial aid and support resources for service members as well, making it clear why U.S. News & World Report ranked Averett University as the 10th best regional college in the South for veterans.

Scholarships for Service Members

Averett is the sole university recipient of the Dan Daniel-Military Resale Invitational Endowed Scholarship since 2012.
