The program allows a scholarship from Hinds to cover out-of-state fees for veterans whose military benefits do not cover all the tuition and fees at the college.
“Our college is proud to be a part of the Veterans Administration ‘Yellow Ribbon Program’ to assist Hinds out-of-state veterans in paying for the out-of-state tuition and fees,” said Dr. Barbara Blankenship, district dean of students.
Hinds Community College has a full-time employee handling veterans affairs at the college. Ryan Braswell, coordinator of Veterans Affairs, can be reached at 601.857.3226 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Post-911 GI bill already covers in-state tuition and fees for military veterans. The VA is matching Hinds Community College’s contribution in order to ensure the military veteran doesn’t have to pay.
