Yale SOM takes a number of active steps to ensure business school is affordable for U.S. military veterans, and we’re proud to be named a “Military Friendly School” by GMAC. Veterans are given equal consideration for merit-based scholarships. Additionally, SOM has several scholarships designated solely for veterans. Please visit the U.S. Military section on the Funding Resources page to learn more about what is available.

Veterans on campus join an active and engaged community. The Yale SOM Veterans Club hosts community events and discussions throughout the year, and also serves as a point of contact for prospective students interested in learning more about the veteran experience at Yale SOM.
