yellow ribbon inside Georgetown College recognized as Military Friendly  Yellow RibbonGeorgetown College has been selected by G.I. Jobs magazine as one of the top “Military Friendly Schools” in the U.S. for 2010 and is honored to be among the 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide so recognized.

Criteria for making the Military Friendly Schools list included efforts to recruit and retain military and veteran students, results in recruiting military and veteran students and academic accreditations.

“This list is especially important now because the recently enacted Post-9/11 GI Bill has given veterans virtually unlimited financial means to go to school,” said Rich McCormack, G.I. Jobs publisher. “Veterans can now enroll in any school, provided they’re academically qualified. So schools are clamoring for them like never before.”

Beginning with the 2009-10 academic year, Georgetown College joined the Department of Veterans Affairs Yellow Ribbon Program whereby eligible veterans enrolled as undergraduates receive a combination of V.A. benefits and college aid to cover tuition charges.

Georgetown College also has a long-standing partnership with the U.S. Air Force and Army ROTC programs at the University of Kentucky to provide scholarships and opportunities for students interested in physical fitness and leadership training. Courses are offered on both campuses and can lead to active duty commissions.
